My son enjoyed this book - and even helped write the review - provided to us by BookLook and Zonderkidz in exchange for an honest review.
Snap Decision by Nathan Whitaker is a great sports-themed book for that pre-teen boy in your life. The back cover gives a real life reminder: "Sometimes the right move isn't in the playbook."
Tripp and Chase are best friends. Chase plays quarterback for the JV football team but has a chance to get called up to varsity; Tripp plays wide receiver for the varsity team. During a varsity game, Chase got a front row seat to a big hit on Tripp. The coaches ask Chase if Tripp was knocked unconscious. If chase tells them that Tripp was knocked out, will their friendship be doomed? But if he doesn't tell the truth, what could those consequences be?
