    I started reading this book tonight and I am glad that it is about football. I would love to buy a football signed by Tom Brady too. What I would really love though, is the chance to win the million dollar check at half time.

    Well I kinda glad that I picked this book it a lot more than just a kid playing football it a lot more than that its all the promblems and everything along with it like abby and how shes gooing blind. So yeah I really like this book.

  3. Michael Milliner — April 9, 2012 @ 6:24 am

    I like this book. It has problems and stuff in it, but the main character is about a kid playing football and all of the problems that can happen and the good things, like playing.

  4. Jasen Hancock — April 10, 2012 @ 7:15 pm

    Okay i think this book is kinda werid cause his friend is going blind and he is all stressed out kind of cause he needed to make the throw and he did so yeah i think he has alot of stuff on his mind but it’s still a okay book

    I dont like this book. I think it compares things to football way to much. I like football and all that but just not this book.

  6. Jasen Hancock — April 11, 2012 @ 7:59 pm

    Well this book i think is kind of better towards the end of it when it like can i make the throw so it’s turn out to be a better book then i thought.

    This book is really good. It reminds me to never be nervous and try your best even when you have a lot of problems. It reminds me of when I was at a football game. I had to play against some kids from another school that were alot bigger than me, and we won. I hope that lots of people can read this book.

    The book is weird and strange it seems like a book about only football.

  9. Dallin Peterson — April 12, 2012 @ 5:01 pm

    The book doesn’t make sense the only big things is football or his friend.

    This book makes me kind of sad because Nate’s family is struggling and because Abby is going blind. It makes me feel kind of happy too though when he wins the money and wants to use it to pay for the surgery to help Abby so she will be able to see.

  11. Dallin Peterson — April 13, 2012 @ 7:45 am

    The book is getting ready for the end.

  12. Dallin Peterson — April 13, 2012 @ 7:46 am

    Well now i know what I what happened at the end, which is weird.

    Thats a nice story this book is dumb i think i didnt even want it. It was so stupid i could read a couple pages fine but then it gets really boaring and i hate it. I wish i picked a diffrent book oh wait i did i just got stuck with this one instead of the one i actually wanted.

  14. Kajay N — April 14, 2012 @ 11:30 am

    I am really glad that i finished it finally. by the size of it i thought i would of been done with it awile ago but i wasnt it took forever because it was so hard to keep reading without loosing intrest.

  15. Kajay N — April 14, 2012 @ 11:33 am

    I wish i finished earlier and remembered that we had to post comment that way i didnt have to write all of these in a row. but i was looking at everyone elses post and there all talking about how they relate and love the book. I think they are just trying to make it look like there writing alot so they get the points for it.:)

  16. Nick Weeks — April 17, 2012 @ 5:53 am

    I really thought this book was interesting so far. I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t be able to happen though. how’d some random kid just happend to get pikced out of a hat. I’m pretty sure those things are rigged too.

  17. Nick Weeks — April 17, 2012 @ 5:59 am

    Ok maybe they’re not rigged but it still he still got barely any chance of get picked.

  18. Nick Weeks — April 17, 2012 @ 6:02 am

    I actually like this book sort of . I think it’s cool how they describe what nat thinks and sees during each play the book tells about.

  19. Nick Weeks — April 17, 2012 @ 6:06 am

    This kid makes me frusterated how do you think you missed a throww especially for a million dolars whith that money you could move to mexico or the phillipines and become a bajillionaire i think ththat would be pretty cool so yeah

  20. Alec Martinez — April 17, 2012 @ 12:22 pm

    Ha kajay you are funny :)
    but i dont think im supposed to comment on this book because it isnt mine so bye… :)

  21. alden long — April 24, 2012 @ 8:44 am

    it kinda think it was a little dumb that he missed the throw cause what i expected it to happes is he made the shot

  22. alden long — April 24, 2012 @ 8:45 am

    the book was kinda boring for me because i didnt enjoy it at all

  23. alden long — April 24, 2012 @ 8:51 am
