In my LA class I am currently reading Lone Stars by Mike Lupica. This book is about a kid named Clay around my age (12) who lives in San Antonio and is playing in one of the top leagues in Texas and this book shows his struggles and glory throughout the season. This book illustrates what it’s like when something bad happens and when something good happens, it also shows what a normal kid would do off the field. This book can tell you a lot about football by just reading it, telling you different coverages, plays, ways to get off the defender and more. Clay is a wide receiver amd he looks up to his coach, Coach Coop who used to play for the Dallas Cowboys as a wide receiver as well. Clay uses coach to learn from him and gain knowledge but he also helps Coach Coop because he is old and he can not really move around and sometimes can’t even think straight. This story can help you under stand how to overcome struggles not just in football but in real life. If you like football or sports you will like this book. I liked all the description about everything he went through because I have experienced a lot of that too, I also liked that it was really descriptive in the games almost like it was freezing the moment and telling you everything he saw but instead of in the blink of an eye it was really expanded. I would really suggest this book to you if you are interested in sports or want to learn about sports.
