Just Too Good To Be True

 Just Too Good To Be True
This was a novel about a young all star high school football player, Brady Bledsoe, whose mother has raised on her own while concealing her own past.  She’s convinced her son to take a vow of celibacy and drama unfolds as an unscrupulous sports agent enters the picture and does whatever it takes to get Brady to sign with him, even if Brady doesn’t realize that he is signing a contract.  Some parts are predicatable and others are juicy and surprising.  It was a nice easy, enjoyable read that was perfect for summer reading.

Where Men Win Glory : The Odyssey of Pat Tillman

Where Men Win Glory : The Odyssey of Pat Tillman
The odyssey of Pat Tillman is a uniquely American tragedy. After the attacks of 9/11 he felt compelled to defend his country. He left a loving wife and a lucrative career as a professional football player to join the military, only to die in a friendly fire incident in Afghanistan.

Tillman was not your typical jock. He challenged himself intellectually as well as physically. He lived by a set of principles that money or love could not supplant. Jon Krakauer (author of previous bestsellers “Into the Wild” and “Into Thin Air”), merges the history of the United States
adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan with Tillman’s life, creating a compelling story.
