So it's a football book. I don't sport. But I enjoyed the book - I even set aside my delicious homemade cheesy ham his cute because I was so close to finishing it and wanted to focus.
There is a lot of football in the book, but it's not really a book about football.
The protagonist is a high school senior. He plays defense for the football team - which has been undefeated for 4 straight seasons.
His home life is a bit of a mess, and so is his best friend.
It was a surprisingly engaging book!
I picked it up to vet for lit circle choices in my classroom, and it doesn't quite meet what I want for that, but I am glad that I read it.
