Lucas is from the other side of the track, his mother a waitress and prostitute and wide receiver that is just as good as Casey, though no colleges are calling him.
This is a story of both boy's lives and how they deal with their high-school lives coming to an end. There are many more characters involved, his parents, the preacher and his wife, Chelsea, the head cheerleader and Casey's girlfriend and several of the coaches, and their scouts. I think that was my problem with the story was the view-points were in all of these voices and skipped around and not in just Casey and or Lucas' voice. It was a bit overwhelming for me. However, it was a very intriguing story, with some twists and turns and a hold-your-breath type ending.
If you like football, Young Adult, coming of age and stories with some violence and a breath-holding end you will like this.
