Product Overview

What would you do with a million dollars, if you were 13? Nate Brodie is nicknamed “Brady” not only for his arm, but also because he’s the biggest Tom Brady fan. He’s even saved up to buy an autographed football. And when he does, he wins the chance for something he’s never dreamed of—to throw a pass through a target at a Patriots game for one million dollars. Nate should be excited. But things have been tough lately. His dad lost his job and his family is losing their home. It’s no secret that a million dollars would go a long way. So all Nate feels is pressure, and just when he needs it most, his golden arm begins to fail him. Even worse, his best friend Abby is going blind, slowly losing her ability to do the one thing she loves most—paint. Yet Abby never complains, and she is Nate’s inspiration. He knows she’ll be there when he makes the throw of a lifetime. Mike Lupica’s latest sports novel is also his most heartwarming.

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.
