Publisher's Summary

Award-winning journalist and ESPN personality Mike Lupica crafts a moving tale of perseverance, loyalty, and of the hope that rides on one pressure-packed football toss.
If 13-year-old Nate Brodie can throw a football through a small target at a Patriots game, he will win a million dollars. Since his dad just lost his job, Nate welcomes the opportunity - at first. Yet as he practices for the big day, he faces great pressure and must draw strength from his dear friend Abby, who never complains—even though she’s slowly losing her sight.
