This book is a great story. I love how a hard time goes to a happy ending. I was literally on the edge of my seat when i was at the ending. I would recommend this book to people who likes to read about a great struggle turns into a new start in recovering. ( )

This book was a really good book. Once i started reading i couldn't stop it was like my eyes were glued to the page. This story was about a quarter back named Nate Brody wanted to keep playing football and his parents did not have enough money for him to keep playing so he saw that there was a raffle to make a throw at half time in Gillette stadium and if he makes the throw he wins a million dollars. I recommend this book to sports fans that are looking for a good book to read.

Mike lupica describes the characters in this book very good. He makes nate come to life,thats how good he describes him. The plot is not that detailed or well developed.Its just about a star quarterback who can make a million dollars to hit a target at a patriots game.Also his parents are struggling to pay the bills.

I like this topic because i like sports. The beginning of this book really draws you in. I think this book is a good level for me,not to hard ,not to easy. ( )

In this book, Mike Lupica shows you what love can do. In this book, love makes the main character have bad and good moments. This book is very similar to his other books. He writes about sports, but the main character has an important life experience. The life experience could be major or minor. Then he writes how they got through the experiment. In this book, the experience is out of the ordinary.
Brady, the main character is thirteen and is one of the best quarterbacks for his age. His best friend Abby is smart and pretty. Unfortunately a disease she gets causes Brady to go off track in his football career. It affects him because of his love for her.
In this book, Mike Lupica does a great job connecting the sport of football to an extraordinary life experience. One problem with his writing was he didn't describe the football games well. He told not showed. Besides that, this is a great read for sport fans and people who love a good story. Read this book, Million Dollar Throw, on how Brady conquers what life throws at him.
