About the book

When Russell gets injured during the opening game, he's angry and feels defeated. But with the help of his friends and the support of his team, he learns that sometimes life's toughest challenges can become our greatest strengths. Will Russell find a way to adapt and make a comeback on the football field? Can he still be a valuable teammate even when he can't play? Can he overcome his many setbacks?

Russell and the Tough Break is an action-packed story about learning how to get up when you get knocked down, using tough times to grow stronger, and the power of leaning on good friends to help you through.

"Game Time: Russell and the Tough Break is a fun read for the entire family! The characters are current and relatable, yet teach timeless lessons of rising above self-pity and championing the greater good. Highly recommended for all young athletes who will inevitably face obstacles in sports and life." - Cindy Chang Mahlberg, former Denver Bronco Cheerleader
