Brooklyn Looper is an emotional story about two Brooklyn high school basketball players: Frankie Morelli, son of a degenerate gambler and part-time dad, teams up with Eddie Mullaney, a straight-shooting, intelligent “gym rat” basketball star, who spends most of his time working as a caddy at a Long Island golf course or honing his basketball skills at the playground or the school gym. The two meet at basketball camp when they are about thirteen years old and embark on a friendship that will take readers back to their high school days where they will recall that friend who no matter what never lets you down. Frankie starts out as a small-time local high school bookie until a high-profile Mob captain leaves him no choice but to expand his enterprise into a world that “All American Eddie” tries to steer clear of. Brooklyn Looper is a strange combination of temptation and loyalty, where Morelli does everything he can to test the guts of Mullaney. The situation the two are about to face will change their lives forever. It will make you realize that good friendships are not so easy to come by and the best ones are even tougher. A NOTE ABOUT THE “FRIENDS OF PETRO” CAMPAIGN: Gregg Petrocelli, a Guidance Counselor and Girl’s Basketball Coach at Elmont Memorial High School in New York , died suddenly, on the court while coaching his girl’s Varsity basketball team, The Lady Spartans, back in February of this year. Due to the fact that Gregg suffered from cancer in 1993, he was never able to obtain life insurance for his family. Our goal is to raise as much money as a life insurance policy would provide and with your help, we’re certain that goal can be attained. Gregg is survived by his wife, Denise and his two daughters, Amy and Nicole. Starting June 1st through August 1st, all net royalties from the sales of Brooklyn Looper will be donated to Friends of Petro. There will be a Radio-thon for Petro to kick off the fundraising on June 1st starting with the Joey Reynolds Show, on WOR 710 AM radio just after midnight. Sean will be on an additional 20 radio interviews along the east coast that day in an effort to reach out to people who, although may not have known Gregg Petrocelli, might like to help his family just by purchasing a book. Thank you in advance for your thoughts and your generosity. Rick Pitino, University of Louisville , and Tom Pecora, Hofstra University , have already been kind enough to get the ball rolling with a very generous donation. We thank them for their help in getting us started.
