The publishing date for this book is 2009. The genre is realistic fiction. This is the genre because the events in this particular story could happen, but not likely. The author of this book is Tim Green who used to be a former NFL player. This picture on the right hand side is Tim Green who used to play for the Atlanta Falcons.
Peele is a jerk for so many reasons. Peele became obsessed with destroying Seth's career; Peele and Seth both went to the same college and both wanted to play football. Seth hit Peele so hard, Peele's helmet came of and made a big wound on Peele's lip that would ruin Peele's career. Peele decided to be a news reporter so he can write mean things and lie about Seth to rupture his career. The bad part is Troy was talking to Peele and Peele switched some words around so it looked like Troy and Seth cheated and did bad things. All in all, Troy helped Seth get his career back to normal.
Setting and How it Affects the Plot
The setting of the book is Atlanta, Georgia at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. It takes places in October. The setting is important because Seth Halloway plays for the Atlanta Falcons. In Atlanta, Peele has to do a news report just to get close enough so he can ruin Seth and Troy. Also, Atlanta is where Seth got his medicines from a doctor, but Peele made it seem Seth was using Steroids. The October part affects the plot because October is where the teams are trying to get to the playoffs to win the Super Bowl. In this case, Seth is trying to get his team to the playoffs since they are doing so good in the regular season, but Peele almost ruins the Falcons chances to going to the playoffs.
Protagonist(s) and Antagonist(s)
The antagonist is Peele. I would say Peele is mean. I can prove this because he wanted revenge on Seth. For example, Peele ruined Seth's career because in college, Seth hit Peele so hard at football practice, Peele's helmet came off and ended Peele's career with a bad cut on his lip. Another example is Peele told the press that Seth used Steroids when Seth used medicine. Finally, when Troy spoke to Peele about something, Peele switched the words around and made it seem that Troy spoke bad about Seth.
Point of View
The next conflict is when Seth was kicked from the Duluth Tigers. The stuff Peele wrote about Seth made it so he couldn't coach the Duluth Tigers in the Championship game. There had to be a vote on who would be the coach, and Seth got the vote, even though the other coach who wanted to be coach was the person who was helping Peele.
