5.0 out of 5 stars A sports-fiction about the disabled, March 23 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Great Quarterback Switch (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.
