Book cover and interior template I designed for Slump by Kevin Waltman, published by Cinco Puntos Press. Derrick Bowman's sophomore year is a grind. He's been looking forward to the basketball season all summer, but his girlfriend Jasmine leaves him for putting too much focus on basketball. The promise his Marion East basketball team showed at the
end of last season isn't materializing. And the sweet jumper D-Bow worked on all summer just isn't falling. When Derrick's father has a heart attack, Derrick is faced with a new reality where basketball can't be his only priority. Slump is the second book in Waltman's D-Bow High School Hoops series.
