Unstoppable by Tim Green


Unstoppable

Age Group: Middle Grade
Genre: Sports Fiction
September 18th 2012 by HarperCollins

Summary: If anyone understands the phrase "tough luck," it's Harrison. As a foster kid in a cruel home, he knows his dream of one day playing in the NFL is a long shot.

Then Harrison is brought into a new home with kind, loving parents—his new dad is even a football coach. Harrison's big build and his incredible determination quickly make him a star running back on the junior high school team.

On the field, he's practically unstoppable. But Harrison's good luck can't last forever. When a routine sports injury leads to a devastating diagnosis, it will take every ounce of Harrison's determination not to give up for good


My Thoughts: Wow, this was definitely a very powerful and moving book. I really love the story of this kid. Abused, wants to kill himself, yet he somehow finds a new life and turns into this incredible star. He comes crashing down with this illness, and has to find it within himself to bring himself out of the trenches and back to stardom. It really was moving to me, and I love that it all centered around the intense and insane world or sports. I do have to say though, the backstory was a little creepy. Can't really spoil anything, but sort of wish Green might've taken an alternative route. Nevertheless, still an amazing book.

Rating: 8.6 out of Ten
