From the minute I started reading this book, I became invested in Jeremy and wondered what his decision would be! I loved the fact that even though Jeremy was a star athlete, he was very humble, willing to learn, and a loyal friend. I appreciated the fact that his parents allowed him to make his own decision of where to go to school. Jeremy has very loving and supporting parents, which is evident not only in how they are raising their son, but also in how they take care of Jeremy’s best friend, Ricky. I was slightly surprised by the “dealings” of the mayor, who desperately wanted Jeremy to stay to play at Centerville High. It was a great example of the lengths that people will go to in order to get what they want (especially in sports).
I was very excited to read this book, as the author is from my home state and we attended the same college. Knowing it would be a hit, I purchased a copy for my nephew who plays football and is entering his freshman year of high school.
I highly recommend this book to middle school and high school students.
Genre: YA Contemporary
Recommended Age: 13+ (football!)
Synopsis: Jeremy Savage, an 8th grade quarterback phenom, has just been given the offer of a lifetime from Coach Robert Fletcher, a local icon-to come and play football for him at St. Michael's Preparatory, the best football program in the state. As Jeremy struggles with this choice, the decision becomes increasingly difficult for him as situations arise in which the deep bonds he has with his friends become stronger and stronger. While Jeremy continues to work through his thoughts, it becomes apparent that there are other forces at play which have a vested interest in his decision. Will he ultimately elect to attend St. Michael's? Or, will he stay with his friends at Centerville High and attempt to become a local legend?
You know what we need more of in the literature world? Books where the football player isn’t the bad guy. It’s a tired cliché. My cousin actually played football for a semester (he’s a quitter so staying that long was an accomplishment in itself), so I know not all jocks are horrible. Jeremy is a good example of this! He’s a very well developed character and his plight is intriguing and heartbreaking. The plot and the pacing was also very well done and I felt the author did amazing with making this feel real.
The only issue I had was the length was too short for my likes and I felt that the author could have done more in the end.
Verdict: If you want a book about football for your football season THIS IS YOUR BOOK!
Coin Toss is a YA book that touches your heart. It is about a boy who has amazing football ability. You would think it would make things easier when every coach wants you on their high school team, but Jeremy has to decide if deep friendships and loyalty are more important or being on the most elite team around is the ‘better’ choice...
I really enjoyed the relationship Jeremy has with his friends. True deep friendships where you may not understand each other all the time but the love is so deep... When hard times happen you are absolutely together!
If you love football and are from a small town, this is 100% a choice for you. Coin Toss definitely makes me miss my high school friends. I would still stop everything to sleep on a floor together to make things better for each of them!
