I found myself cutting into my sleep schedule staying up later than usual just to read another couple chapter every night.
That all stops when he meets this new girl Lucia. Fans of football and the movie Varsity Blues will find themselves stressing along with junior, Miles Manning, as he watches what he thought was going to be a state-bound football season fall apart along with his personal life.
If you ever come in contact with this book or see it anywhere near you, burn it immediately.
After Miles told his parents they had no sympathy whatsoever for him, because they had preached to him since he was a baby that respect was the key to a good life and he had not respected his coach, therefor they believed that he was not working hard enough and he was complacent and thought he should have his spot on the team locked up forever.
This was one of the best books I have ever read. I would recommend this book to all teens and especially to athletes.
Sep 03, Cory rated it liked it. I never felt they had favorites, they played who deserved to play. He lives in Minneapolis and visits crackbacl around the world. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone teenager or football fan who likes to read about the life of football players, and the pressure that they have on them. His father saw him do very good on a game, and the main character found out why he is always hard on craxkback, and they stopped fighting.
He is the only good underclassman cpy the team also. I related to the story of a high school student going through the daily life of homework, sports, parents, coaches, teachers, and all the stress that comes up every week.

Miles is excited about his junior-year football season. He has to overcome the new coach taking over yelling at him to do things tha When I started to crackabck this book I thought it was going to be about a team that goes to state in a big game and wins it by a little.
But when the coach gets sick and gets replaced, Miles gets caught messing around at practice and then the coach pulled him into his office and told him that he would not play another snap as long as he was the coach. Nov 08, Jackson Hoeft rated it it was amazing. And let me just say, that this book is literally the worst book I have ever read.
Did you know that in a survey concluded that over 1 million people in the US have used steroids. Can he survive and work his way back up? Miles is one of the best players on cracoback team and starts on defense.
This is used throughout the entire book like in chapter one on page three “I turn the last corner and sprint back” this is giving us a crsckback point of what he is experiencing and how his actions have either good or bad consequences. I really like this book because I play football also and a lot of his feelings he feels and the way he does things, I have experienced also.
