I have read just about all of Mike Lupica's books; all of which really don't have a problem; everything always goes the characters way, but in Million-Dollar Throw Ned Broadie has anything but luck. Million-Dollar Throw puts you through every emotion possible. Million-Dollar Throw is basically about a kid named Nate Broadie whose parents are struggling financially and just barely keeping their house. But some luck was on Nate's side when he bought a signed Tom Brady ball and won a raffle to throw a football through a target and win 1 million dollars. But meanwhile Nate's good friend Abby was going through an awful disease where someone's vision deteriorates at a slow pace, but Abby had it bad and her vision was off the charts bad in a quick amount of time. The only problem was that Nate the top rated quarterback in the state was on the verge of losing his starting job as quarterback . Would Nate lose his starting job?
Would he make the throw? What happens to Abby? I would highly recommend this book, I would rate it an easy five out of five, this is a must read for not just sports fans.
