Booklist, The Horn Book Guide

Junior Library Guild

  • Writing in an engaging style that focuses on the action of the game, Fred Bowen makes his high-school sports story accessible to an elementary audience.
  • Occasional, well-integrated drawings of game schedules, scoreboards, and play diagrams add context while also illustrating Jesse’s tactical prowess as quarterback.
  • Readers will be inspired by the idea that venturing out of one’s comfort zone can often produce big results. For example, Jesse tries out for quarterback despite thinking he’s too small, and Savannah, a female classmate and member of the soccer team, finds success as kicker for Jesse’s football team.
  • Reinforcing the theme that physical appearance is often a poor measure of talent, a concluding note titled “The Real Story” discusses athletes such as Fran Tarkenton, Cal Ripken Jr., and Brianna Amat, who “have done well despite not ‘looking the part.’”
