Although I learned more about being a quarterback than I ever thought possible (or wanted to know), I loved this book. It is a story about Matthew "the Rocket" Rising, a high school and college football star. He is falsely accused of child molestation (etc.) and sentenced to 20 years in prison. The bulk of the story is about what happens when he is released after 12 years for good behavior: the hostile/negative affect on his community, his wife, his friends. . . and on the positive, how he changes the life of a high school football player by training him to be a great quarterback. Good story, good ending.
