Editorial Reviews

Gr 5-8–Chase Clark, an eighth grader quarterback of a losing JV football team, is poised to move up to the Loggerheads’s varsity team if he plays his cards right. The Florida teen’s best friend, Tripp, has already moved up, and another classmate, Meghan, was chosen as varsity kicker. Chase practices with both teams when senior skip day tempts some players to risk being benched, and it is just one lesson on the importance of making wise choices. A child of divorce, Chase looks to his coaches, and his religious friend, JB, for a moral compass. When Tripp hits his head during a game and doesn’t want to stop playing, Chase knows he must tell the truth about Tripp’s blackout---and obvious concussion---but it costs him the friendship. Days go by as Tripp is kept out of the playoffs, and Chase goes in. Playing on both teams causes Chase’s grades to suffer, so it is no surprise when his math teacher suspects him of cheating on a test. His answers matched Tripp’s, even in the mistakes, and Chase is suspended from football. Embarrassed and bewildered, Chase is eventually exonerated when the truth comes out, and is reinstated in time for the final, nail-biting game. The slow build to climax may frustrate readers who crave faster-paced action, but the football plays are detailed and authentic. Appended information about concussions highlight the symptoms and dangers. Librarians may also add this to character education and/or Christian fiction bibliographies.–Vicki Reutter, State University of New York at Cortland

    Review from Rambles of a SAHM

    Meets Expectations: 4
    It's football season in small town Lincoln, Florida. For Chase Clark and his best friend Tripp Stevens this is the time of year that they look forward to. Both boys are in junior high but Tripp has been called up to the varsity football team and it is looking like Chase may just get his chance at varsity as well.

    When Chase finally makes his varsity debut all seems to be right in his world, until an unexpected hit leaves his best friend with an injury that takes him out of the game. Chase is the one that has to admit that Tripp blacked out and was confused. Tripp becomes angry and withdraws from his friend, blaming him for having to sit out of games. Will their long lasting friendship survive?

    Snap Decision is a book about football, but it is also a book about friendship, character, integrity and forgiveness. The story takes a good look at the effects of concussions in teens. It also delves into the pressure that is put on players to just ignore the injury and play through the pain. But the story doesn't stop there it also encompasses what it means to truly be a friend.

    This would be a great book for the boy in your life that loves sports. I think he will come away from it enjoying a good story but also learning what it really means to be a good friend and teammate.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    My Review:

    Football wasn't just a game to Chase and Tripp, it was their life. And getting on the varsity team at school was their dream, and since achieving that dream they feel unstoppable. But the unthinkable happens and they feel that they may lose their grip on that said dream. All of a sudden Tripp gets hurt and it feels that everything that they have worked so hard for may be disintegrating right in front of them as they hopelessly stand by and watch in amazement.



    As a result of the accident that occurred, Tripp finds himself battling headaches and has a real hard time concentrating.He starts failing at school because of this and visits to the doctor prove to be a waste of time because they insist he is fine. The boys usual have a strong bond as friends, but the bond they have seems to be under fire as they fight and argue constantly. Soon everything seems to be in question their friendship, their involvement in school and on the team. This book is geared for middle schoolers and I think the author has properly conveyed what it is like in the world of 8th graders.

    **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher.
