Texas Fridays – School Library Journal
This new series explores the fanfare of high school football, following the stories of different players from cities all over Texas. The diverse backgrounds and authentic struggles of these players, including relationship drama and family pressures, make the characters relatable and the plots engaging. These books are written at a sixth grade reading level, though they are longer than most hi-lo books, and some mature content makes them appropriate for high school readers.
