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.

Listener Opinions

    " Great sports book, and I'm not a huge sports fan. It is also a bit more than your average sports book. It has the somewhat absurd plot about a middle school kid who has a chance to win the million dollar throw during the half time of a professional football game. However, the meat of the story is about the various pressures on a young athlete and young person in general: sports, the economy, family, and friendships. Really thoughtful book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph A. | 2/8/2014

    " This book was a very good book and Robert Bobby always had a problem and he would have to try really hard to make the problem better. And his best friend is becoming blind so she has to leave his school,so he does anything he could to help. And he has to face the biggest problem, winning a million-dollars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Deroche | 2/4/2014

    " After reading this book I would really recomend it to anyone interested in football. The book is a quick read and the ending of the book makes the entire book worth it. So I suggest that anyone read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eprimer | 1/28/2014

    " I really like this book, I really like all of Mike Lupica's books. In this book you learn, don't give up if you believe in your self you could do anything you want to. This book is about a kid who was great at football he played quarterback. He was the star of the team and his family is very poor and they are struggling. But the main character in this book spots this billboard and on it said Million Dollar Throw. Underneath that said enter the raffle and if you win you will get a chance to throw the ball from about the 50 yard line into a target. If you hit it you will win a million dollars. He enters the raffle and he wins so he gets the chance and? "

    " I found this book while helping my daughter look for books at the library. It may be written for young adults, but adults will also enjoy it. Especially those who love football like I do. Great story that is so present day. This would be a great read for boys. They would love all the football. "

    " 13-year-old quarterback and his going-blind friend who happens to be a girl prepare for his one throw that could win him a million dollars. It gets into his head and messes with him. Not as cheesy as I thought it would be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack | 5/31/2011

    " This was a good book, but i felt that the only conflict was the stress felt by the protagonist. if i wanted to read about a conflicted character, i would read the catcher in the rye. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grant | 5/15/2011

    " I thought the author didn't dig deeply. He also jumped around too much. Every chapter is a new story. The author could keep your mind on two things in the book very good. Lupica also made things seem not to obvious. The events in order I thought wasn't very good. "
