One life ended in tragedy. Another challenged by a promise. Will a teen's twenty-year journey to make his dad proud change him into the man he's meant to be? In 1966, Jim Pepperman comes home from practice to the news that his dad has died in an oil rig accident. Not only has the high school football star lost his mentor and best friend, but when his mom moves the family from Texas to New Jersey, he's forced to say goodbye to his home, his team, and his chance for a football scholarship.Facing senior year in a new school with no friends, Jim struggles to keep the promise he made after his dad died to be a substitute father for his two younger sisters and a shoulder for his mom. But stepping into his dad's shoes at seventeen feels impossible, the same way giving up the dream to play pro ball is harder than Jim thought. And senior year is just the beginning.

This is an intriguing coming-of-age tale about a young football player who perseveres in spite of the many hardships and challenges he is facing both on and off the field. I found it to be an enjoyable read even though I don’t know a lot about the sport. Also, because it is a clean read, I would recommend this story for all ages.
