When Coach Gordon suddenly retires, Quinn Brown has to prove to a new coach that he deserves to remain the Spartans’ starting quarterback. But Coach Miller’s style seems to be throwing Quinn off his game—and big-mouthed second-string Luke is gunning for Quinn’s position.

To top it off, Quinn has been paired up with a peer tutor for math, and the tutor’s a new kid everyone’s making fun of. Who would have thought that the new kid would be exactly the kind of friend a struggling quarterback needs—both on and off the football field?
