The Million Dollar Throw by Mike Lupica. This is a very good book. It¿s the perfect book for middle school boy. Especially if you like football or play football, then this is a book you want to read.

Nate Brodie was your average kid, but when it comes to football he is becomes no averaged kid. He was the star quarter back in the league. Nate and his best friend Abby went to this sport store to see what new things they got. While they were in the store Abby signed Nate up for a contest to make a throw on an NFL field and try to get it through a little hole to win one-million dollars. Now Abby has a problem with her sight, she is completely blind at night and in the future could become blind if she doesn¿t get this very expensive surgery. The money could help Nate¿s parents and Abby.

There aren¿t a lot of characters in this book. The characters are Nate Brodie, Mr. and Mrs. Brodie, Abby, her mom, coach, and Nate¿s teammates. The theme of the book is you can do anything if you believe. The story takes place in Boston, Massachusetts in present day.

The reason I wrote a review on this book is because it is a good book to read. Hopefully from my review I will get more people to read this wonderful book. Also it is a great book for football players. This could change the way people think about football or just the way you think about things in general.

I gave this book four out of five stars. I didn¿t give it five out of five because there were places in the book that could have been better. What I mean by this is that in some places the book was being too descriptive, and in other places it didn¿t describe things enough and would leave you confused. In some parts.

    This book wasn’t very good, it got boring in the middle o

    This book wasn’t very good, it got boring in the middle of the book but the rest was alright. I should of known not to read it because the other Mike Lupica books were pretty bad, like heat and travel team. The first thirty pages were ok but the middle was not good but the last part was ok. I guess it wasn’t that big of a mystery that he was going to make the throw good
