The new book of the late Kobe Bryant is expected to debut on top of the best-seller list, according to Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press.

Per Reynolds, Bryant’s book entitled “The Wizenard Series: Season One” is set to debut at No. 1 on the New York Times’ middle-grade hardcover list that will be published on April 19. Concurrently, it has already been No. 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list for children’s basketball books.

“Season One, the latest installment of Bryant’s Wizenard story line that follows the progress of a young basketball player dealing with various trials and tribulations, was released last week.

Bryant’s company describes it as “a story of strain and sacrifice, supernatural breakthroughs, and supreme dedication to the game,” Reynolds reports.

Bryant died in a helicopter crash on January 26.
