Read Game Change Online Free - Can one game really change everything?
Seventeen-year-old Zeb Holloway works in his uncle’s auto repair shop and spends his weekends deer hunting in New Hampshire’s backwoords. He’s a quarterback on his high school’s undefeated football team, but he never plays. Why would he when T.T. Munroe—a walking, talking highlight real—is around? That is, until T.T.’s injured a week before the state championship game.
Now Zeb’s tapped to start. As he assumes the role of QB and team leader, it feels like the entire town is watching. Girls want to talk to him and adults want to shake his hand. When a college recruiter says Zeb could have a future beyond his small New Hampshire town, he realizes there’s a bigger life out there for him…if he can play his heart out.
