Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–6—Twelve-year-old Sam's extracurricular life revolves around football. After watching a video replay of an important game, the team realizes that its winning score was made inadvertently on an illegal fifth down. Bowen uses historical events—a game between Cornell and Dartmouth played in 1940—to anchor the plot realistically. This device will resonate with readers as it imparts an actual dilemma and conclusion without moralistic advice. They will feel the players' emotions when the Cowboys have to make an important decision based on an honest mistake by an official. This book can be used as an excellent opportunity for a group discussion and will be a fine addition to other popular play-by-play sports chapter books.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

My 8 year old grandson does not like to read so it is hard to get him to sit down with a book. He read a Fred Bowen book from school and loved it. I have ordered him three Fred Bowen books for home. He will now sit down and read 30 minutes without too much complaining. He likes all the sports stories.

My son never cared much for reading until I found Fred Bowen's books! He has read this book and 3 others and I had to order 5 more! He really liked this book but The Perfect Pitch is his favorite. He's reading Quarterback Season now and he's really enjoying that one! You can't go wrong with any of Bowen's books.
