Gus Blackburn is on the football team, but he always sits on the bench. He dreams of being a great player, fitting in with his teammates, and talking to the girl he has a crush on. But dreaming isn’t helping. Gus needs to get beyond his daydreams and work for what he wants. In the back of the book are questions promoting visual literacy, descriptions of football positions, and a glossary.
The series is perfect for reluctant readers, especially boys.
I liked the book, even though books revolving around sports don't usually interest me. This is a cute graphic novel and a fun story.
