Basketball star LeBron James is gearing up to release his co-authored second children’s book, “We Are Family,” slated for publication on Tuesday, 31 August 2021.
James co-authored the book with Andrea Williams.
The upcoming book is a follow-up to James’ book debut, “I Promise,” inspired by his foundation’s I Promise programs and the I Promise School in Akron.
Publisher Harper Collins says the book follows five new friends — all with different dreams, goals, and backgrounds — as they band together to save their basketball season and “prove that sometimes getting a chance is all it takes to succeed.”
“We Are Family” is a middle-grade novel by James and writer Andrea Williams about five new friends who have different dreams and backgrounds but work together to save their basketball season and prove that they can succeed if given the chance, HarperCollins Children’s Books said in a news release.
“‘We Are Family’ shows how an unlikely group of kids comes together to chase their dreams, despite having the odds stacked against them. It’s an important story of family, purpose, and perseverance in the face of adversity that I hope inspires everyone who reads it to never stop dreaming and believing in what they’re capable of,” said James in a news release.
The new book is aimed toward middle school students.
