Book Crush by Nancy Pearl

This book is cool because it is just lists of recommended reading. It’s divided by age and genre, so you can find books that are just what you want. It’s for teens and kids, and there is another book that is for adults.

The Real All Americans by Sally Jenkins

Football, Jim Thorpe, Pop Warner, and Dwight D. Eisenhower! What more can I say?

Playing for Pizza by John Grisham

Book Jacket

This is not the usual Grisham legal thriller, but a story of a football player who is cut from the Cleveland Browns after playing the worst game in NFL history.  Rick only knows football, so agrees to play in Italy for the Panthers of Parma.  Language and culture are just two of his obstacles.  It’s ok, but I like the legal stories better.

Book Jacket

High school football in Oklahoma “ranks next to God and country, and truth be known, sometimes came in first.”  Hampton Green is the star senior linebacker and feels the weight of trying for a fifth undefeated season.  Situations on and off of the field become increasingly difficult and Hamp must decide to live his life by what feels right or by what is expected.  The football scenes were detailed and the family, friendship, and dating parts were equally good.
