Two-Minute Drill (Comeback Kids #4)
Reading Level: 4th – 5th Grade
Series: Comeback Kids

From #1 New York Times bestseller Mike Lupica!

Chris Conlan is the coolest kid in sixth grade. The golden-armed quarterback of the football team and the boy all the others look up to.

Scott Parry is the new kid, the boy with the huge brain, but with feet that trip over themselves.

These two boys may seem like an odd couple, but each has a secret that draws them together, and proves that the will to succeed is even more important than raw talent.

Though simply written and predictable, this brisk story of friendship and football will be a huge hit with the target audience.

School Library Journal

Lupica portrays the action clearly and vividly, with a real sense of the excitement and unpredictable nature of the games. These are worthy additions to collections seeking to draw in middle-grade boys with an enthusiasm for athletics.
