All In: Gullible Victoria House worries about everything. She worries about being too fat and not being as bold as her half-sister Vanessa. Then some terrible rumors about her family cause her to rebel and take off. Only baller, Stone Bush, can draw her back and teach her how to stand up for herself. Stand Firm: Stone has vowed to never be like his using, abusing, rock star dad. But now that the coach is threatening to bench him, will he turn to performance enhancing drugs just to keep balling? What will Vanessa think about his use of steroids? The Lockwood Lions' crosstown rivals, the Grovehill Giants, seem to have it all. Or do they? When the cheer squad and the ballers get together, it always gets intense. But there are two sides to every story--whose side are you on? Each novel in the flip is approximately 30,000 words-170 pages. The ladies of Savvy Girl--Skylar, Ariel, Vanessa, Victoria, and Yaris--have their ups and downs. But they won't let their drama interfere with the state title. The ballers of Fresh Guy--Ford, Ryder, Emerson, Stone, and Hagen--are tough athletes and grand showboaters. But can they take it to the Dome?
