At the same time he was playing wide receiver he was practicing the throw for his challenge. One game though the kid who was the starting quarterback got hurt and Nate had to go back in. Starting at that point Nate didn't have trouble making a good pass.

"Nate Brodie is probably the best thirteen year old quarterback in all of Boston, but he would need more than skill to make a throw like this. Nate has been given a chance to make a throw into a twenty inch target at Gillette stadium with thirty million people watching for one million dollars. Although this is more than just a normal million dollar throw. His dad lost his job and almost their house, and his best friend Abby is going blind. His whole life is leading up to this throw. Will he make it? I recommend this book to anyone that loves sports or young adult books. I was exilirated while reading this book and hope you are too." said.

"Million Dollar Throw
by Mike Lupica
Nate has the football arm NFL recruiters only dream about. But when his best friend Abby hooks him up with a chance of a lifetime, suddenly his arm won't cooperate. Everything is on the line, and if Nate's arm fails him, he will not only let himself down, but everyone he loves. This novel rocks! First of all, it feels realistic. I mean, most of us know what it's like to live in a house that is tight on money and doesn't have a lot of extra cash to throw around. Some of you may have parents who work two jobs, or maybe you even have a part time job yourself to help take the strain off the parents. Either way, you will feel for Nate and won't be able to put this book down--and when Nate's moment comes, you'll be holding your breath and crossing your fingers that he succeeds--just like I did.

"Nate Brodie has always been nicknamed "Brady" after Super Bowl Champ quarterback Tom Brady because of his magnificent and accurate arm. This book contains everything you could want in a book from sports action, suspense, and all the way to "family" drama in between. Nate soon finds out that his arm may lead him to the best thing that his family has received in a while and all he has to do is just throw a long and accurate pass at midfield of the biggest sporting event in American history, the NFL Super Bowl. Mr. Brodie finds out that his family may be in peril and after discovering the "Million Dollar-Throw" challenge at the next Super Bowl which happened to be right there in New England, he knew that this was his shot to not only show the world what his arm could do, but to make his family proud as they would be enlightened by the fact that their son had just won them 1 million dollars with a simple throw. Find out if "Brady's" arm could lead to more money than he can spend, or if he will luck out in what seems like winning the lottery with the winning numbers in your hand. This book is a must-read for anybody interested in football but can also be appealing to any reader who likes a good thrill in their books. " said.

"Million-Dollar Throw by Mike Lupica was an amazing book. It is about two main characters, Nate Brodie and Abby McCall. Nate is an amazing quarterback, and Abby is an outstanding artist. But their lives aren’t what you would call perfect. Nate’s parents are having trouble keeping their house, so they are both working two jobs to try to save it. Abby’s family is doing fine financially, but she has retinitis pigmentosa, an eye disease that is wearing away at her peripheral vision. Abby enters Nate into a raffle and he wins. His prize is the chance to throw a football through a 20 inch hole from 30 yards away at halftime of the Super Bowl on Thanksgiving. That would change everything for him. His family would be out of financial trouble, and he would be able to give Abby the best care possible for her disease.
Million-Dollar Throw is a well written, intense, and sad story. My favorite part of the book is when Nate is on the field getting ready for the throw. He gets to meet Tom Brady, his favorite player in the world and his idol. Then he steps up to make the throw, and …
There are two possible endings. One, Nate could make the throw and his life would be turned way around. Or two, he misses and lives with the fact that he had the chance to change everything, but didn’t. Will Nate make the throw? Read to find out.
