I don't read a lot of sports books; but, this one was recommended by a friend and I picked it up at the Mall. Stevie and Susan Carol are reporting on the Army-Navy game. They are teenage sideline reporters and have a knack for uncovering all sorts of pretty cool stories about the game and the players. The Army-Navy Game is a big deal for both teams. Some really strange events occur because the President will be at the game. These reporters follow the teams and the players for a couple of weeks finding out all sorts of neat info. Security is going to be a big deal because there have been threats against the President. If you are looking for a good book about sports and some of the behind the game nitty gritty, you will love this book. There is mystery and suspense in the story. Stevie and Susan will take you into a world where even a football game is not what it appears to be---and the winners and losers are not always on the field. Tex

I'm a big fan of Navy football (and Mr. Feinstein) and a regular at Army/Navy games, so I thought this would be an interesting read. While I would recommend this book for teenagers who might want to know more about the behind the scenes world of service academy football with a little mystery thrown in, I was disappointed in this book. I found the whole story of 14 year olds as serious journalists very unbelievable, and the Scooby Doo mystery solving was hokey. Still, I enjoyed seeing familiar names like Coach Ken, Ricky Dobbs and Scott S mentioned, but I'm not sure the casual fan would be as entertained. It's a quick read, though, and I think a lot of teens and young adults would learn what it takes to be a football player at an Academy as compared to the big time programs, as well as the preparation and homework that needs to be done by the Secret Service when the President attends the game.

I am a bit confused with what is going on in the book right now, but I did take a break from reading it for a bit due to lots of homework and am only on chapter 2, so I will post another review when I am finished. I have loved the previous books in the series and hope this one will be as good as the others.

No mystery book what so ever. Only a book that shows how paranoid some people are of Southerners. And it shows how ignorant one New Yorker by the name of Fernstein is. One way he's ignorant is 1) the characters being nervous of Obama coming to a game with Southerners in some of the teams 2) Susan Carole's accent. We South Carolinians and North Carolinians don't say loooove. 3) How dare you, the author acuse a SC boy of the crime!

This is a great book although the flashbacks can be very confusing at times.

The book I read for my independent novel was &ldquo;The Rivalry&rdquo; By: John Feinstein , It interest me in many ways , but I can say, when I started to read it I didn&rsquo;t think it was going to be as much of a good book as it was. This book is mainly about a camp of two groups of men from all over the country of the United States, which are the Army League and the Navy League. They all came to this camp to be on a break from all their hard work but , they still had some commanders that were very strict because of how long they been involved with this camp such as , restrictions , discipline , and very little of an amount of times you can do things. This camp was mainly built for these men to see how everything has turned into a big fight because of the way they think and because of how this world is today. Football is what they do to see all these things that they came for, they play between the Navy and Army league and whoever wins this rivalry, wins respect for their selves. After the 2010 game The Army-Navy Game has been played one-hundred and eleven times, Navy leads the series with fifty-five wins and Army forty-nine wins and with seven games that were tied at the end. Navy is now dominating the series with their last nine wins. Even presidents were once involved in these games such as Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolridge Dwight D. Eisenhower , John F. Kennedy , Bill Clinton , and George W. Bush. Many Families came out to support their husbands, father, etc. to show them what they are mainly playing this game for. After every year these men are involved with this game they all became one and not two groups who were known to go against each other as if they were enemies. And that is the main points I received from reading this book.
