About the Author
Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He's the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated covaledictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR.
His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best.
Bestselling author Jon Scieszka called Tim Green's Unstoppable, a book about a boy's struggle with cancer that debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, "Absolutely heroic. And something every guy should read."
Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York.

The first time Trevor and Sam meet and shake hands, Trevor is overwhelmed by a strange sensation he can't explain. He is convinced someone is playing tricks with his mind. He thinks he is looking into a mirror and can't let go of the guy's hand. Something tells him that everything about his life, and possibly the life of the boy standing opposite him, is about to change in a big way.
Only in Hollywood, where Trevor is a teenage film star, could such a charming and believable story about reuniting twins be cast. The movie-making world is the perfect setting for the situation where Trevor's long-lost identical twin brother is chosen as his stand-in. The stand-in takes the star's place while the crew sets up the shot for the film. When Sam wanders into central casting looking for part-time work, he's immediately snatched up as a stand-in for his identical twin, but no one knows at first that the boys are related.
Of course, there is a good reason why Sam is on a movie lot looking for work and why Trevor is running bases with the Los Angeles Dodgers as his 13th birthday present. But when the boys figure out how easy it is to "pinch hit" for each other, unsuspecting adults and friends are befuddled and worried.Read more ›
