When Marcus moves to a new town in the dead of summer, he doesn't know a soul. While practicing football for impending tryouts, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with an older man. Charlie is a charismatic prankster—and the best football player Marcus has ever seen. He can't believe his good luck when he finds out that Charlie is actually Charlie Popovich, or "the King of Pop," as he had been nicknamed during his career as an NFL linebacker. But that's not all. There is a secret about Charlie that his own family is desperate to hide.

When Marcus begins school, he meets the starting quarterback on the team: Troy Popovich. Right from the beginning, Marcus and Troy disagree—about football, about Troy's ex-girlfriend, Alyssa, but most of all, about what's good for Charlie. Marcus is betting that he knows what's best for the King of Pop. And he is willing to risk everything to help his friend.

About the Author:

Gordon Korman wrote his first book at age fourteen and since then has written more than eighty-five middle grade and teen novels. Favorites include the New York Times bestselling Ungifted and the Masterminds series, as well as the teen novel Pop. Gordon lives with his family on Long Island, New York. You can visit him online at www.gordonkorman.com.

From AudioFile:

While training for football tryouts in his new town, Marcus befriends a middle-aged man named Charlie, who is a former NFL star and a practical joker. Charlie is also suffering from early dementia. Their friendship rankles Charlie's son, Troy, a big man on campus at the high school. Troy feels that Marcus should back off--from his father, from wooing his ex-girlfriend, and from coveting his position as quarterback. Korman's touching sports story is read with care by Nick Podehl. Although listeners will never believe his female voices and his upstate New York accent is not fully convincing, these are minor quibbles. Podehl transitions from teen to adult seamlessly; his growling coaches are especially charming. This is a captivating and heartbreaking audiobook. G.A.D. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
