Matt, an eighth grader, expects to be the starting quarterback on his middle school team. But he’s got some serious competition from a new seventh grader – the annoying but talented Devro Beech. To make matters worse, his English teacher is on his case about a new class assignment: he has to keep a journal. He doesn’t know what to write about. Then his teacher says, “Keep a diary about playing on the football team.” So he does. And as he writes, he starts paying closer attention to what’s happening on and off the field. And he discovers that not everything is what it seems to be…not even Devro
