Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of TRAVEL TEAM, HEAT, and MILION-DOLAR THROW comes a cheer-worthy, family-friendly football novel set amid the Friday Night Lights world of Texas high school football.


Jake Cullen is a freshman quarterback playing high school football in the high-pressure land of Friday Night Lights (Texas). He is also the brother of Wyatt Cullen, who quarterbacked his team to the Texas State Championship last season--not to mention the son of former NFL quarterback and local legend, Troy Cullen. To be a Cullen in Texas is to be royalty . . . and a quarterback. All of which leaves 14-year-old Jake in a Texas-sized shadow, a tall order for any boy, especially one who's merely a freshman.

While his teammates assume the starting job will be handed to Jake on a silver platter, the truth is that he has to fight for every snap and every ounce of respect. Jake may be a Cullen and he may play quarterback, but he is not his brother or his father. Being a good teammate comes naturally to Jake; being a winner and a celebrity does not. He's just like every other boy--awkward around a pretty girl, in awe of his famous family, and desperate to simultaneously blend in and cast his own shadow.

Inspired by the real-life Manning family of quarterbacks (father Archie, Read More chevron_right

   A good TODAY SHOW recommend
I like football so much so that I decided to give it a try. I'm glad that I did. Yes, there is a lot of football involved. There are many references to Peyton and Eli Manning, but there is also a family history behind the football. If you have seen Friday Night Lights, you understand the Texas High School mentality-obsessed. If you are in a family with more than one child, you understand the childhood dilemma of who is the favorite child. A good read is a simple one.

   Add QB1 to Mom, Apple Pie and Chevrolet!
High school football is America for a large portion of the population on Friday nights, and QB1 has all the ingredients that make it a great read. Designed and intended for young male readers, this almost 69-year old enjoyed thoroughly the great storyline that included sibling rivalry, parental favoritism, budding romance, and the developing talent of a young quarterback. Early on in reading this book, I found myself beginning to root for this young athlete, sympathize with his setbacks, become encouraged by his minor successes and finally, greatly satisfied, when everything came together for a rousing finish in the final game of the season. I highly recommend this book to teenagers of all ages!

   I love football and the Mannings
Here I am not the target audience. I am a 50 - year old woman and I still loved this book. Have recommended it to my two twenty-something sons and bought it for my football messed up nephews for Christmas. Great book to get young boys who would rather be the ball thrown to read. The fathers and the football fans will also enjoy it.
