Things couldn't be going better for Troy White. The Atlanta Falcons' football genius is at the top of his game, helping the team get to the playoffs. Agents and lawyers are knocking on his door with big-money offers for the upcoming season. And his own football team has just won the Georgia State Championship!

In that instant, Troy's life is changed.

About the Author:

Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He's the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated covaledictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR.

His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best.

Bestselling author Jon Scieszka called Tim Green's Unstoppable, a book about a boy's struggle with cancer that debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, "Absolutely heroic. And something every guy should read."

Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-8–In previous entries, 12-year-old Troy White parlayed his remarkable play-predicting ability into a high-paying job with his beloved Atlanta Falcons and led his youth league team to a state championship. As Big Time opens, Troy's biological father, Drew Edinger, makes a plea to be allowed to become part of his son's life and to represent him in negotiations with other NFL teams. It soon appears that Drew's interest is mainly financial, however. It also becomes evident that he is connected to some shady characters. Troy is ambivalent about his involvement with his father as his attraction to the lifestyle Drew offers creates tension in his relationship with his sensible mother. When federal officials reveal to Troy the extent of Edinger's criminal activities, the boy agrees to help nab his father's associates. Drew will also be caught in the web, but the agents offer Troy the possibility of a lighter prison sentence for his father in return for the boy's cooperation. Edinger escapes capture, but materializes briefly in a cliff-hanger ending after a game in which Troy quarterbacks his Georgia all-star team to victory over Florida. The story moves along at a brisk clip, the language is straightforward and accessible, and the issues raised are likely to engage readers. Yet even the least sophisticated members of the target audience may find it difficult to accept a scenario in which a 12-year-old garners a $15-million pro football contract and assumes a lead role in a federal sting operation.Richard Luzer, Fair Haven Union High School, VT
