Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6–The life of a sixth grader spirals out of control when his football team breaks up, his father moves out, and he starts crushing on his best friend's twin sister. Taking a cue from the real-life New York Jets, Eddie decides to start a new squad, replacing two longtime players in an effort to turn around his team's losing record. The writing is serviceable but doesn't come alive in a novel that is driven more by its message than by its characters. The parallel story lines emphasize that teams–be they in sports, among friends, or in families–should stick together, but the characters just aren't convincing. Eddie articulates his feelings about his parents' separation with preternatural ease, and the dialogue is a bit flat (I'm sorry for what I did. And I'm even sorrier for making you mad. But I like her. And nothing you say or do is gonna stop me from liking her). This is certainly no better or worse than most of the Matt Christopher titles that fly off the shelves, but, even so, it's mainly a supplementary purchase.–Adrienne Furness, Webster Public Library, NY

I highly recommend this novel. I'm neither a boy nor a football fan, but I found Eddie and The Jets highly engrossing and entertaining. The author has a straightforward and engaging style that keeps the book moving quickly. All the characters are believable and likable, and I think kids will really be able to identify with the problems faced by Eddie and his friends and family. Indeed, the story is quite touching without being at all melodramatic. I can't wait to share this book with my nephews - and friends!

I bought this book for my cousin's son, but decided to read it before giving it away. And I'm glad I did! Even though it's written for a younger crowd, I found it very engaging for adults, too. Aside from football, Mr. Attanas touches upon various issues everyone faces regardless of age. And the straight-forward writing style makes it hard to put down!

Definitely worth reading!!

I've been having a very hard time finding quality middle grade boy fiction to give to my son, so I am delighted to have come across this new book! This is perfect boy fiction, and speaks to its readers (my son relates to Eddie, the main character). Bravo to Mr. Attanas--I hope he will continue to write more children's literature!
