Resumen del libro

As a star basketball player in her last year of high school, Nancy Takahiro’s life is about to change forever. Facing the fear of leaving home and wondering where her skill will take her, Nancy is not prepared for the complications that arise when she meets Raina Webber, a devoted, ferocious athlete, whose love of basketball is matched only by her talent for it.
 
When Nancy's father and Raina's mother fall in love and decide to move in together, the girls are faced with the challenge of negotiating their already intense rivalry and friendship—and of living with the scrutiny of neighbors who react with varying degrees of comfort to their Japanese-American and African-American household.


The Necessary Hunger follows Nancy, Raina, and several of their friends through their last year of high school. For some of them, their senior year will be full of glory, and the anticipation of college. For others, however, stranded in an inner-city Los Angeles neighborhood that promises little in the way of opportunity, it will mark not only the end of their time in school but also the end of their hope.


 
As Nancy and Raina both prepare to leave the urban neighborhood that has nurtured them, they find themselves looking toward a future that is no longer easily defined. The Necessary Hunger is about families, friendship, racial identity, and young people who are nearing adulthood in a dangerous and challenging world. It is about sports as a means of salvation, about the nature of competition, and ultimately about the various kinds of love.
