Praise
"Banking his usual over-the-top humor, Korman goes straight to the heart."
"Gordon Korman has used news reports and studies that link repeated concussions to dementia in former N.F.L. players to create a brisk, heartfelt and timely novel about the risks of pursuing a sport that can devastate one's brain."
From the Publisher
Annotation New to town and dying of summer boredom, Marcus practices for football try-outs in the park and ends up befriending a former NFL star, Charlie Popovich. Humorous and edgy, Charlie is a player and fun to hang out with. But Marcus slowly discovers that Charlie is suffering from a disease that his family wants kept secret. Soon, Marcus finds himself at odds with everyone, hoping that he can help Charlie in the best way possible.
