" This is also a very well written story about sports and a child life as a football player/ fan. " said.

" Middle grade boys will enjoy this book about the uncomfortable transition to middle school by a boy who lives and breathes football. " said.

" I like this book because it is about football.At the begging he makes a tough decision and he picks to play defense instead of offense.This is a very good book if you are interested in sports books you should read it. " said.

" A good book about what it is like to be in middle school, make new friends, try new things (like cooking) and live your life between your dad and mom's house. Oh yeah, and making the team! My favorite character is G-Man who calls himself that instead of grandpa because he thinks he is too young to be a grandpa! " said.

"In the third title of his 4 for 4 sports series, John Coy follows sixth graders Jackson, Gig, Isaac, and Diego as they adjust to middle school where homework is as much a priority as football. Jackson must decide between offense or defense on the football team and has to deal with moving into the house of his mother's boyfriend. Gig is worried about his father who is serving in the military in Afghanistan. Diego isn't sure that he even wants to play football since the chances of injury are high. The action is fast-paced and the characters are believable and imperfect, sometimes making bad choices as they find a way to fit in. One of the neatest elements in this book for reluctant readers is how the author includes an extracurricular school club for readers and actually has his characters briefly describe why they read a certain book. He deserves extra points for that and for making reading cool. Middle graders who won't pick up any books will pick up and enjoy this title. " said.

"Starting middle school has Jackson worried because he is also having to move into his mother's boyfriend's home. He already has a father; he doesn't need Ted, too. There are older students who are giving him a hard time, classes are difficult, and he is forced to be in a reading club. He has to take a food class, which is okay because there is a girl he likes in it. The one thing he looks forward to is football, but he is worried that his friend Diego won't go out for the team because his mother is afraid of injuries. His friend Gig is still concerned about his father in Afghanistan. Will all of these things get Jackson down, or will he be able to work everything out?
Strengths: This is a nice easy read for boys who like sports, even though there aren't as many descriptions of games. Readers of Rich Wallace will like these. I liked the book club and the shout out to Ritter's baseball books!
Weaknesses: Again with the bullies threatening swirlies and taking kids' lunch money. Sigh. I suppose it happens in some places.

"So I'm curently reading this book and it is spectacular!!!! It has events that middle school kids can relate to.
***************************SPOILER ALERT*******************************
The reason is for that is that there is a group of 8th graders that think they rule the school. The 8th graders are taking the younger grades food and items. Aside from that, the main character in the book loves to play football, and is a victim to the 8th grade group. So if you like the realistic fiction genre, this is the book for you! I am POSITVE that you will not be dissapointed. It will keep you entertained with all the exciting events coming to happen...
