Ty Lewis is ecstatic when the school coach recruits him for the football team. Unfortunately, Ty's Uncle Gus has other plans for him - namely, scrubbing toilets for Gus's cleaning service. Ty's only relief from his oppressive uncle comes in the too-rare times he can spend with his big brother, Thane, a college football star who's headed for the NFL.

But when Uncle Gus gets involved with the local mob boss, a man called Lucy, and Lucy finds out how famous Thane is, things begin to spiral out of control. As the tension ratchets up, Ty finds himself trapped in a dangerous web. The stakes are high, and one false move on Ty's part could destroy his brother's future.

    " Ty joins a football team and he is in the playoffs and they throw him the game winning TD and he catches it. this is a great book it is one of my favorite authors. Ty is in every book he has wrote. He is my favorite character in all the books iv read science the million dollar shot. i am defiantly looking forward to reading his next book!!!!!! Ty is my favorite character in the book. He is nice and kind. Tim Green is probably in my top ten favorite authors of all time. He is a former NFL football player, I like football. I remember seeing him in books and in magizines. "

    " Here's a book that I think kids will like. It is fast-paced with short chapters and a good dose of insider football talk - at the game level and at the pro-football lifestyle level. It also has danger/suspense as mob sports betting is at the heart of the plot. "

    " Unfourtnately, at the very start of this book, it was so much like Football Genius that I had to try to figure out if I'd already read it. It was just SO similar. While I still enjoyed it and read it all quite happily Mr. Green's work is just too much alike for me to reccomend. Totally a kid's book, which is okay, but just be aware. Unless you're between 8-10 (boy) I wouldn't even reccomend trying it out. A kid boy's book. Not for girls, which is okay. Just don't tell me I didn't warn you. (don't get all mad, there are books specifically for different genders and don't read this just to prove you're a tom boy *sigh*) I picked this up cuz' I read Football Genius which was again in the "just ok" catagory, but I thought I could go for an easy read. Very good for reluctant readers. Don't get me wrong, it's good writing if you only read one book, just don't expect variations in the story line. Just OK. "

    " good but the first book was better "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 1/9/2014

    " My first SSYRA grade 6-8 book of the year done. Reading these with my daughter. This one was ok. "You can accomplish anything and make the best of a bad situation" type of book. Not just a sports book. Some nice action and edge of your seat thrown in too...well, for a 6th grader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mit Patel | 10/6/2013

    " i cant open the book how do u do that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph Washington | 4/27/2013

    " I thought that this was a good book because it was a boy who never got to see his star brother until he was famous because his uncle wanted to use him for his money. It was also good because it was about a boy named Ty who always got picked on until he was a very good football player. "

    " Great book for both boys and girls of any age. It has the appropriate "bad guys", the token bully and the hero that beats all! A very uplifting and fun story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joey C. | 10/13/2011

    " I thought this book was really awesome. The author Tim Green is a really good author and writes really incredable sport books so I heard. I would recommend this book to people who like football or like to watch it. "

    " Good middle school boy read in the Football Genius series, can read alone. Troy can map out plays and is worth big bucks to the NFL. Absent father returns with ulterior motives. "

    " I would have never read this book if Tim Green himself didn't read the first two chapters to me and my school. He is a talented writer and knows exactly what we want to read. "
