Whether or not you like football, reading “Unstoppable” by Tim Green will be a touching book to you. The author was a former football player, and he takes some of his life and other people life experiences, and captures feeling into this fiction novel.
The main character, Harrison, has had some troubles in his life. He has gone through four foster-homes, when he finally lands in a home with the Kellys. His dream is to become a professional football player. He’s in luck-his foster dad is the coach for his middle school team!
It turns out that he is a spectacular football player, and he is like a snowplow on the field by scoring touchdowns and running defenders over. The girl he has a crush on likes him, and his football team is headed for the championships. He thinks that life is too good. It is, and life is about to change for him. Forever.
After a major hit to his knee, he goes to visit the doctor and finds that there is more to his swelling knee than that hit. Harrison must fight hard to overcome the difficulties in this 343-page book. Fighting hard is not always easy, but then again, what is life without challenges?
In this unforgettable book, Harrison learns what it truly means to be unstoppable. Gordon Korman writes, “I don’t know anyone–kid or adult–who won’t root heart-and-soul for Harrison. UNSTOPPABLE means you can’t put this book down!” By the end of reading this book, I had to agree with Gordon Korman. I couldn’t put this book down! This story is probably best for ages 10 and up, but most age groups will definitely root for Harrison!
