Tim Green has written a bunch of football and baseball books for the tween age group. He played football for the Atlanta falcons, so he has the inside scoop on what football is really like. I have read a few of his other books too, but I think I like this one the best. This story is about a boy named Ryan Zinna, a small but super-fast middle school student. Ryan had been playing soccer, not because he liked it but because his mother made him. She told him if he played soccer for three years then she would finally allow him to try out for football, his true passion. The book begins with the unexpected death of Ryan’s father. Ryan begins to discover many things that he never knew about his father, including the fact that his father owned the Dallas Cowboys. He never knew his dad and had always had the dream of impressing him with his fantastic football skills one day. Now with his father’s untimely death, that will never happen. Ryan’s father did leave him with one thing that Ryan knew nothing about…being the owner of the Dallas Cowboys as a middle-schooler. That was unheard of and Ryan quickly became super popular. This is a great book, I couldn’t put it down. A kid can only dream to own a national football team and this book definitely gave me some great dreams.
