From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of HEAT and TRAVEL TEAM.

Everyone calls Nate Brodie Brady because he's a New England quarterback, just like his idol, Tom Brady. And now he's got a chance to win a million dollars by throwing one pass through a target at halftime in the Patriots; Thanksgiving night game. More than anything, Nate's family needs the money--his dad's been downsized, his mom's working two jobs, and they're on the verge of losing their house. The worry is more weight than a 13-year-old can bear, and it's affecting his playing for his own football team. Suddenly the boy with the golden arm is having trouble completing a pass . . . but can he make the one that really counts?

   A great book
Mike Lupica is my favorite author because most of his books are about believing. In this case, it is a 13 year old boy who is picked in a raffle to try and win a million dollars by passing a football through a 28 inch hole. My favorite part about it is that there is a girl named Abby who loses her sight ability. Will Nate win all the prize money? What will he use the money for? When you read this article, find out the Million Dollar Throw.

Nate entered a competition where he would throw a football into a tire for 30 yards and win 1 million dollars.

   A real page turner
Though this is young adult fiction and sports, I enjoyed it as much as or maybe even more than my 10-year-old son! It was the kind of book that you can only put down. Abby and his football buddies and his best friend, Nate, are also great role models for teens and teens, boys and girls.
