the reason i gave this book a 5 out of 5 was because this book never missed a beat there was always something happening and if there wasn't there was about to be.
i think some that loves football should read this book expectantly if there dream is to be a Quarterback
they will enjoy this book as much as i did.
i don't know what would have made this book better then them playing more games and them making crazy plays.

I enjoyed reading the book, “Emergency Quarterback” by Rich Wallace. Rich Wallace has written this book about Vinnie, the starting quarterback, who gets injured and can't play anymore.

He tries to do everything himself during the game and not throwing the ball to their fast, starting wideout, Jason is very talented. The coach realizes what Wade is doing. The coach decided to move J ...more

*** For anyone who loves football, this book delivers pure football action. I liked that it touched on a few other issues such as selfishness and racial comments but in a way that any grade level could read the book and find the material appropriate. The main characters are in middle school but a first grader could read it as well as a struggling adolescent and enjoy it equally for the football action.

Plot: Jason Fiorelli is a wingback and star player on the Hudson City Hornets. He wants to win

Lagi pengen baca buku tentang Rugby, dan kebetulan dapet nih. Beberapa hari belakangan penasaran pengen tau kek apa sih permainan rugby ini, dimulai dari fiksi dulu kali ya? Nanti kalo mo tau lebih lanjut baru baca teknik permainannya.

Kisah buku ini dimulai dari sang quarterback, Vinnie, andalan team Hudson City yang mengalami cidera. Ada sih quarterback cadangan namanya Wade. Tapi (as usual seperti biasa buku-buku tentang olah raga) Wade ini belagu, sombong, egois, dan lain sebagainya. Dia mo k

This book is an awesome book because one its about football, my favorite sport next to wrestling. This book is about a football team who is on their way to the championship. With 3 games away their first string quarterback gets hurt. The 2nd string quarterback Wade couldn't meet up to the expectations because he was scared he might mess up being that he's not as good as their 1st string. This guy named Jason Fiorelli is a wing back who is doing good this season at wing back. The coach of the hor ...more
