The theme of this book it that hard work pays off. This book talks about football and the preperation of football. For example it talks about how they renovated the stadiums. It also talks about how they get ready for big games and what they go through. Some major characters are Audrey Spencer, Rob Henderson, Audrey scolds, and Wilson Spencer. The protagonist is Rob Henderson.
The dialogue of the book isn't to good. The writing is ok and it is very easy to read. I will not continue reading this
