Emergency Quarterback

Release Date: May 4, 2006

“Vinnie DiMarco and Jason Fiorelli are the star quarterback/receiver combination for the Hudson City Hornets, a team of middle school kids that is closing in on an undefeated season. Jason is the star, but when Vinnie injures his wrist at the end of a game, there is no one but Wade, a selfish ex-quarterback who lost his starting job, to get Jason the ball. To everyone’s surprise, Coach Podesta assigns Jason to be the emergency quarterback. This is a fine read for young boys anxious to dream of being the hero for the home team.” — Children’s Literature review
