Thirteen year old Harrison has had a tough life being bounced from foster home to foster home. Because of his uncertain life, Harrison hasn’t had much time for school or extracurricular activities such as sports until he ends up in the home of a couple willing to adopt him. When he arrives at this new home, Harrison feels love and acceptance. Since his adopted father is a teacher and coach at the local middle school, Harrison’s focus changes from survival to academics and sports. Because of his aggression and strength, Harrison seems a natural for the football team. His determination and ability on the field earn him the label “unstoppable.” Just when things seem too good to be true, Harrison is faced with the biggest challenge of his life. With the help of family and friends, Harrison faces the challenge and takes the label “unstoppable” to a new level.
Unstoppable is not just a book for football fans. Though it has many action-packed football scenes, even those who are not football fans will find this book appealing as they root for Harrison on and off the field.
I love working in the middle school library because each day I get to work with wonderful students. In addition, I have access to lots of interesting books. It is always fun to help students connect to books they like, and to talk about what they are reading.
