New York Times bestselling author Mike Lupica scores a touchdown with his new middle-grade sports series!

Ben McBain is every football team's dream player. He's a jack-of-all-trades guy that can handle almost any position. When the game is on the line, Ben's number is the one being called for the final play. But Ben wants to be the starting quarterback and the one thing standing in his way is the coach's son.

Shawn O'Brien looks the part. He has been groomed by his father, a former professional quarterback. But despite his size and arm strength, Shawn is struggling.

Ben is torn between being a good teammate and going after his own dream. As Ben finds out, Shawn isn't the easiest person to help. And when Ben gets an unexpected opportunity, the entire game will change for the both of them.

Bestselling author Mike Lupica kicks off a winning new series about sports and friendship that will captivate listeners.

    " This was the first Mike Lupica book that I've read. I can see why he's popular with young readers. His style is clear and straightforward. For those who love football, I'm sure they will really enjoy this book. As someone who doesn't like football, I was getting a bit bored with all that football talk. But, that said, I did like this book. Again, it's great to have another writer offering sports fiction for kids. "

    " Great book for kids! MIke Lupica is a great kid writer! HIgh action, well written and good for a slightly younger group than Mike Lupica's feel kid novels like Travel Team and more substance than the Comeback Kids series. "

    " Read this with my 10-year old son. He loved it. It's written in a very colloquial manner, and there are a lot of descriptions of football games. So of course, it's great for kids more obsessed with sports than reading. My main problem with it was that the main character was pretty unbelievable. I would have liked to see a little more fullness to the character. I think it was great that he always did the right thing, but I think some kids would have trouble relating. It would have been more interesting if he had struggled a little more, the way most kids do in real life. "
