Editorial Reviews

"A deeply engaging story...This book will pleasantly surprise readers used to the same old predictable sports stories for boys... For a very good portrayal of emotional turmoil, this is one football story that is worthy of reading, regardless of how much the reader loves or loathes sport. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

"This fast-paced, short novel is perfect...It offers the excitement of the game and at the same time includes a story with substance and morals...Recommended."

— Resource Links

"This is one of the best Orca books I've read. This book will be a great read for reluctant readers."

— Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group
