Title: Million-Dollar Throw
SynopsisWith an unbelievable throwing arm, 13-year-old Nate Brodie has earned the nickname, "Brady," after star football player Tom Brady. Everything has been going badly in Nate's life, his dad lost his job, and his best friend Abby seems to be headed toward total blindness. But when Nate has a chance to make a pass at the Patriots game and win a million dollars, things start to look up. How will he do under so much pressure, and what will happen if he actually wins? An inspiring, enjoyable, and thought-provoking middle-grade read by bestselling author Mike Lupica, whose other books include TRAVEL TEAM and HEAT.
Industry Reviews"Lupica's football action engages, and his delineation of the athlete's thought process and emotional highs and lows of competition feels visceral and real."
Everyone calls Nate Brodie ÒBradyÓ because heÕs a New England quarterback, just like his idol, Tom Brady. And now heÕs got a chance to win a million dollars by throwing one pass through a target at halftime in the PatriotsÕ Thanksgiving night game. More than anything, NateÕs family needs the moneyÑhis dadÕs been downsized, his momÕs working two jobs, and theyÕre on the verge of losing their house. The worry is more weight than a 13-year-old can bear, and itÕs affecting his playing for his own football team. Suddenly the boy with the golden arm is having trouble completing a pass . . . but can he make the one that really counts?
