About the Book

Lone Stars

An uplifting story about role models, football, and tackling fear set in the heart of Friday Night Lights country --- from the bestselling author of HEAT, TRAVEL TEAM, and FANTASY LEAGUE

Clay is a quarterback’s dream. When he zips across the field, arms outstretched, there’s no denying him the catch. Like most Texans, Clay is never more at home than when playing football. And his coach, a former star player for the Dallas Cowboys, is just like a second father. But as the football season kicks off, Clay begins to notice some odd behavior from his coach. The conclusion is painful: Coach Cooper is showing side effects of the many concussions he sustained during his playing days. As Clay’s season wears on, it becomes clear that the real victory will be to help his coach walk onto that famous star logo in the middle of Cowboys Field one last time --- during a ceremony honoring him and his former Super Bowl-winning teammates.
