Alec is angry and sad and he feels betrayed by his mom for leaving him for a job. Alec’s grandma moves in with them after his mother leaves to help keep the family going until she comes back.

In an attempt to help lift Alec's spirit and encourage him to use his anger for something good, Alec's dad suggests that he try out for the school football team. When Alec makes the team, beating out his brother Antoine for a starting position, there is trouble. Antoine becomes jealous because Alec is not only doing better than him in school but now in football too. Dad steps in and makes the boys work things out. In the midst of trying to adjust to having his dad at school with him, Alec, out of frustrationsays he wishes his grandma was not there and then later she has a heart attack, Alec feels guilty. Through football, lessons from his father and the story of Joseph, Alec learns that God allows things to happen in people's lives to help them grow. He also learns how to trust and depend on God to work things out.

From the Back Cover:

The only person who cares about me is Mom. Now that she’s gone I’m stuck at home with my angry dad and my annoying brother. Antoine thinks he’s all that and won’t get off my case. And now that Dad is the assistant principal at school, everything is a mess!

That kid Tyrod is out to get me in trouble. Antoine is all mad because the football coach likes my moves better than his. And Grandma has completely taken over our house. At least Morgan and my boy Trey are in my class. But things are getting weird with Morgan and I’m not sure why.

Even with all the trouble, I’m starting to see that Dad really does have my back. He’s trying to do things God’s way. Like teaching me what it means to be a team player – at home, at school, and on the football field. He might even get Mom to come home. Like I told my friend Morgan, I think it’s all going to work out because we are on God’s team.
