Summer Reading: QB1 by Mike Lupica

This is one in a series of posts highlighting books for our Summer Reading Celebration Day on September 23rd. Students can choose one of the books from our list for their enjoyment. This does not fulfill ANY school requirements and participation will not be graded. Click on the image for the complete list. 

Today's post is about Mike Lupica's QB1, which is about Jake Cullen, a freshman quarterback playing high school football in the high-pressure land of Friday Night Lights (Texas). He is also the brother of Wyatt Cullen, who quarterbacked his team to the Texas State Championship last season, not to mention the son of former NFL quarterback and local legend, Troy Cullen. To be a Cullen in Texas is to be royalty...and a quarterback. All of which leaves 14-year-old Jake in a Texas-sized shadow, a tall order for any boy, especially one who's merely a freshman. This book is 272 pages and contains language.
