Coy, John. Crackback

Coy, John. Crackback. Scholastic, 2005 [0-439-69733-6]
Miles is excited about his Junior year in HS and his time on the football team. So is his father who was a football star in his High School. It seems that this story will be a rah rah football story with a father's loving support. Well, Miles' father is less than loving. In fact he is verbally abusive and picks on everything Miles does on the field. Everything really changes when Miles beloved coach has to resign for medical reasons. Miles doesn't like the new coach and the new coach does not like him. For the first time in his life, Miles is no longer a starter on the team. This 201 page book is not your usual sports story, well worth reading and adding to your collection.
