Chris Crutcher is well known as a chronicler of gritty stories for teens, and this audiobook is no exception. Tara Sands is the perfect narrator for this audiobook. Annie has been in and out of foster care her whole life, and though she has now been with a stable foster family for a number of years, she still craves interactions with her unpredictable birth family. Sands gives Annie a voice that is wry and sarcastic with a subtle undertone of naïveté. She voices the supporting characters equally well. The audiobook's title refers to Annie's penchant for intentionally losing basketball games early in the season so that her team will play more games, since sporting events are where she is able to see her birth family.
