Product Details


“Lupica has crafted another fine sports story for the middle school reader.”—VOYA

“Young readers, no matter their level of interest in the game, will be drawn in by this touching, timely story.”—Booklist

“There is plenty of great football action to keep the sports enthusiasts engaged, and the information about concussive injury is easily understood and applied. This is an entertaining read that also imparts an important message.”—School Library Connection

Praise for Mike Lupica

“Lupica is the greatest sports writer for middle school readers.”—VOYA on True Legend
“Lupica has the knowledge of the game and the lean prose to make a taut, realistic story not just about the game but about heart, character, and family.”—Kirkus Reviews on Travel Team
“The dialogue crackles, and the rich cast of supporting characters nearly steals the show. Top-notch entertainment in the Carl Hiaasen mold.”—Booklist, starred review of Heat
“Lupica gives his readers a behind-the-scenes look at major league sports. In this novel, he adds genuine insights into family dynamics.”—Booklist on The Batboy
“Lupica will win a Pulitzer for his sportswriting one day (he should have won it already).”—The New York Times on Heat
