Friday Night Lights

H.G. Bissinger


This book takes place in a state called Texas. Odessa is not a very big school. The football team is called the panthers. Throughout the football teams season the team comes together and and they win all of their games. they then make it to the semi finals of the football season. Read the book to find out what happens to the team in the semi finals! My favorite quote from the book is " To most whites in Odessa, Boobie is the necessary black athletic talent needed to challenge other desegregated schools"(Bissinger 253). I like this quote becasue it is trying to say that it doesent matter what race you are you can still be good a sports/talent.
