Format: Paperback
The Great Quarterback Switch, by Matt Christopher, is a book about a boy named Michael, who is physically disabled. Michael is stuck in a wheelchair the rest of his life. He has a twin brother Tom, who plays football. Michael goes to every game, wishing he could play. One day, the twins meet their next door neighbor. Ollie Prutte is pretty old. He believes in mental telepathy. Ollie tells the boys instructions on how to do telepathy, from what he knows. At Tom's next football game, it happens, the telepathy works!! This book, a sports-fiction book, is great for young sports readers. The author, Matt Christopher, is presently living in Rock Hill, South Carolina with his wife, Cay. He has written more than thirty sports novels for children.
One reason why readers like this book is because I love sports books and Matt Christopher is really good at writing for kids. A really good scene is when, on the second game of trying telepathy, it works and Michael scores two touchdowns. Another reason why readers enjoy this book is because Matt writes books so that it makes it seem real-life, not fiction. He is a great writer.

HASH(0xa2a52b40) out of 5 stars The Great Quarterback Switch Sept. 15 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Great Quarterback Switch

My book is called The Great Quarterback Switch by Matt Christopher. The book is about two twin brothers named Tom and Michael that love football. But one day a tragic accident happens. Michael walked out in the street and was hit by a car. So he was paralyzed for the rest of his life. The two twins go to their neighbor's house once in a while because they're friends, and one day the man says that if you think hard enough to change places with each other in a game, than it could happen. So one day at a football game, Tom is calling the plays and Michael is on the sideline thinking hard to change places. Then all of a sudden it happens! They switched places and Michael is in the uniform and tom is sitting in the wheelchair with Michael's clothes on. Michael calls the play and it works to perfection. So Michael gets his wish to play football again, come true. My favorite character in this book is Michael because once he switches places with Tom and, makes a good play and once he comes back to his real self, everyone is cheering for Tom. And Michael wasn't selfish enough to go tell everyone that he was actually the person who made the good play. Michael was really good at football, and it was very unfortunate that he had to get hit by a car and be paralyzed for the rest of his life.

The reason I recommend this book is so interesting that whenever I read it I never want to put it down. I always want to read the next line, or next page, or next chapter of the book.

HASH(0xa2a52a8c) out of 5 stars The Great Quarter Back Switch Dec 9 2005
By Omar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
This book is about two twins that love the game of football, but one of the twins is handicaped. When his other brother plays in the football games, they switched their minds and the twin that was normal would be sitting in the wheelchair. I think that this book is very good. Its not the greatest, but its good for kids like in the middle school or junior high.

HASH(0xa2a52720) out of 5 stars Pretty good book for football. June 26 2010
By Kim Scharf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was pretty good. I don't really like football and all those sports out their but I thought this book was really good. Anyone that likes sports or doesn't like sports should get this book right away.
This book is about a kid that plays football and a kid that doesn't play football but The kid that does not play football knows a lot of plays because he watches his brother play football. One day they were losing, so they did something. So him and his brother switch and the brother that knows a lot of plays helps win the game and go to the championships. It's an awesome book that everyone should read when they have a chance.
