about this item
"This book is a solid choice for reluctant readers who also happen to love football."--School Library Journal"Will keep sports fans reading.” —Kirkus ReviewsTwo teams. One summer. No rules. Wyatt Parker is tired of getting picked on by bullies and ignored by girls. He hopes playing football will toughen him up and impress his next-door neighbor Evan, who has her eye on the town’s star quarterback.His older brother, Aaron has an even better idea: if Wyatt ditches the lame golf camp his parents signed him up for, he can play with Aaron in the League of Pain, the roughest and most secretive rogue football league in town.Now Wyatt has a choice. He can play by the rules like he always does, or he can steal back his neighbor, accept the penalties of the game, and have the winning summer he's been waiting for all year.
