6th&up.
A bit of a departure for the seasoned sports writer, this novel features a boy whose larger than life father dies in a plane crash and passes along his super powers to his unsuspecting son. The premise is stellar, although I thought the action was a bit slow and erratic at times. Regardless, I think this book will have tons of appeal for boys in the upper elementary/middle school range.
