As the backup quarterback for the Hawks, Ben Paulson is happy to ride the bench and hang out with his teammates on the sidelines. But everything changes when the Hawks' star quarterback, Wes Blake, gets suspended for pulling poor grades in math. With Ben at the helm, the offense starts to stall, and his teammates place the blame squarely on his shoulders. Soon after, a possible solution to Ben's passing problems reveals itself -- but he's not so sure it's the right answer.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Wes Blake and Ben Paulson play on their middle-school football team, the Hawks. Wes is the star quarterback, and Ben is the backup, who usually sits on the bench. When Wes fails his algebra exam, the teacher has him suspended from the team until he improves his grade, which means Ben, who gets good grades but lacks athletic confidence, must play. After the team suffers a humiliating loss, Wes decides that Ben should help him study algebra, and he can help Ben practice football. Even when Wes does well enough to play again, the next big game, against a very tough team, will need both boys. This graphic novel, part of the Sports Illustrated Kids Graphic Novels series, provides football action in a story that promotes cooperation on and off the field without being too preachy. Sandoval's quirky but dynamic art shows manga influences. The book includes a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts. Readers should also pay attention to the little ticker-tape commentary at the bottom of the pages.--Kan, Ka. Copyright 2010 Booklist"
