Kadeem Jones is a star quarterback for Southside High. He is thrilled when Teller College wants him to come be their quarterback.

A short, but fairly well-developed book. The characters are likable and relatable to. The plot is realistic and easy to relate to. Readers who like realistic fiction, urban fiction, and school stories will enjoy reading this book. MS, HS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Jessica M, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High
