This was one of my favorite reads. It combines my favorite genres, sports and realistic fiction. Jackson, a boy my age, is just beginning Middle School and doesn’t know if he will have time for sports. His three friends, Gig, Isaac and Diego all play football and have fun playing. My favorite part is when Jackson plays a football game with his sprained finger. I liked this book because it was about football. I recommend this book to people who like real life fiction and sports.
