When Troy White proved his remarkable "football genius" to the Atlanta Falcons, they brought him on board as a team consultant. Now, thanks to Troy's ability to predict winning plays, the Falcons are pulling in victories. Troy loves his starring role behind the scenes and the thrill of having NFL star linebacker Seth Halloway (who's dating Troy's mom) to coach his own Duluth Tigers team on their way to a state championship.

Then Troy's perfect world comes crashing down. Reporter Brent Peele is out to smear as much mud on the Falcons as he can, and that means going after Troy. The vicious media storm that descends on the football genius threatens not only his job with the Falcons and the Tigers' run at a championship but his mother's career--and Seth's--as well.

Together with his best friends, loyal Nathan and feisty Tate, Troy sets out to unmask the dishonest Peele--and save Seth's reputation--no matter what the risk.

With his signature blend of thrilling action and insider knowledge, Tim Green shows Troy, hero of the New York Times bestselling Football Genius, in a new and riveting adventure.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Green sends the 12-year-old savant introduced in Football Genius (2007) into the national spotlight in this second sequel. Proud of his unfailing ability to predict football plays, Troy naively grants a solo interview to an unscrupulous reporter and finds himself along with his NFL linebacker friend, Seth publicly accused of cheating. Not only are the play-off hopes of their pro team (the Atlanta Falcons) and Troy's own Duluth Tigers threatened but so are the careers of Seth and Troy's mother, who works in the Falcons' PR department. Readers will enthusiastically cheer Troy on as he heroically rises to every occasion, both on and off the field.--Peters, John Copyright 2009 Booklist"
