My Review:
 Football wasn't just a game to Chase and Tripp, it was their life. And getting on the varsity team at school was their dream, and since achieving that dream they feel unstoppable. But the unthinkable happens and they feel that they may lose their grip on that said dream. All of a sudden Tripp gets hurt and it feels that everything that they have worked so hard for may be disintegrating right in front of them as they hopelessly stand by and watch in amazement.

 As a result of the accident that occurred, Tripp finds himself battling headaches and has a real hard time concentrating.He starts failing at school because of this and visits to the doctor prove to be a waste of time because they insist he is fine. The boys usual have a strong bond as friends, but the bond they have seems to be under fire as they fight and argue constantly. Soon everything seems to be in question their friendship, their involvement in school and on the team. This book is geared for middle schoolers and I think the author has properly conveyed what it is like in the world of 8th graders.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher.
