This book are about two twins that love the game of football. Micheal was was the starting QB for his team until there was a tragic accident. That meant that Tom would have to play QB while Micheal watched from the sidelines. Tom wanted to be just like his brother out on the field so he came up with a play that they have never ran. The weird thing was that Micheal was thinking of the same play in his head when Tom called it. Everyone thinks the boys connect through a signal antenna in their brai ...more

One day on a hot sunny football field there was two brothers that love a lot of football. Michael, the best quarterback they had. Michael had a accident and couldn’t play. His brother Tom was the new quarterback. Michael was just on the wheelchair near the sideline seeing what his brother was doing on the field. Tom wanted to try a play that they never made. They go for the play that he wanted to try and it actually worked. They were so tired that after practice they were talking about that play ...more

this book is about two brothers michael and tom.michael was a football player for a team called the eagles. his twin brother tom is in a wheelchair because he is crippled. but they are both twins and they both have psychic ability so sometimes they could tell what each other are thinking due to their psychic abilitys.

i like this book because it was about football.

the book had a good story line.

i like how the story was put together.

i wonder why they did not tell why tom was in a wheelchair.

When the story starts Tome and his twin brother Chris both love football. The only difference between them is that Chris has to watch from the sidelines, while Tom heads the team. Chris has to watch from the sidlines in a wheelchair. When their neighbor, an old college professor, talks about TEC. They are just dying to try it. In a game when Tom isn't doing so good, they both concentrate very hard on switching spots. Then all of a sudden its Chris sitting on the bench ready to play and Tom on th ...more

I thought this book was okay. This book was somewhat interesting, and had an interesting idea. I think this book was pretty good, and I would probably read it again. This book was about two boys who can basically read eachothers mind and switch places. This book was interesting and they did some pretty cool things. I would reccommend this book to anyone that likes football, and is somewhat interested in mind switching and things like that

This book is a ok book but it was kind of weird. It is about two brothers who switch place.One is in a wheel chair and all he wants is to be able to get on the football field and play QB like he used to before his accident.Him and his brothers somehow switch places and he is playing on the field for his brother.I would recommend this book to everyone.

The great quarterback switch was good. Its about two identical twins and one has a bad accident and the other is the starting quarterback, but it took awhile to get to the point but when they finally did was a cool how if he concentrated hard enough him and his twin would call the play.

I didn't like this book at all it is the worst book I have read this year. I mean I like it because of the sports but other than that I hated it. I personally think the author rushed to the end instead of adding detail and making the book interesting.
