Red Zone Rivals

by Eric Howling

Save your fight for the field
When Coach Gordon suddenly retires, Quinn Brown has to prove to a new coach that he deserves to remain the Spartans' starting quarterback. But Coach Miller's style seems to be throwing Quinn off his game -- and big-mouthed second-string Luke is gunning for Quinn's position.

To top it off, Quinn has been paired up with a peer tutor for math, and the tutor's a new kid everyone's making fun of. Who would have thought that the new kid would be exactly the kind of friend a struggling quarterback needs -- both on and off the football field?

"[Red Zone Rivals would be great for a middle school library or classroom. This book would be great to open up discussions on disabilities (physical and learning problems), bullying, relationships, illnesses, and dealing with change."
Pat Hensley,, Educator at Successful Teaching/Furman University
"The lessons [Quinn learns are part of what we all hope our children will learn in high school, and one of the reasons some parents encourage their children in team sports . . . lessons in maturity, ethical principles, and honourable behaviour."
Karyn Huenemann,, Resource Links
"Great addition to a hi-lo collection for junior high and high school."
Alyssa Campbell,, Librarian at Munroe Junior High School, NetGalley Reviewer
