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.
"Lupica delivers another smooth, well-paced, character-driven novel." (School Library Journal)
"Lupica's football action engages, and his delineation of the athlete's thought process and emotional highs and lows of competition feels visceral and real." (Kirkus Reviews)

Everything. Made it very boring. Talked in the same voice when talking for characters.
