Publisher Comments:

As the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy, Tim Tebow captured America's attention and became a first-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos. But it is Tim's devout faith, and commitment to reaching people for Christ through missions and his personal testimony, that truly distinguish him on and off the football field. In this softcover edition of Through My Eyes: A Quarterback's Journey, Youth Edition, based on the New York Times bestselling adult book, Tim shares the behind-the-scenes details about his life, including how his Christian faith has shaped him, the importance of his family values, and how he became one of the greatest college quarterbacks in history and a top prospect in the NFL. Tebow's story will inspire middle grade readers to follow their passions and be the best they can be in life, while also demonstrating how they can reach out to those around us and minister in God's name. Parents and grandparents will be assured they are giving their young reader a book they will both enjoy and learn valuable lessons from, while educators can use the book to entice reluctant readers interested in sports and popular culture. Through My Eyes also includes a question and answer section with Tim Tebow, providing readers with an additional connection to the rising football star.

Synopsis:

From the beloved and charismatic wide receiver for the 2012 Super Bowl–winning New York Giants comes a root-for-the-underdog memoir about always believing in yourself.

Victor Cruz, the Super Bowl-winning and record-breaking wide receiver, is best known for his explosive plays and salsa touchdown celebrations. While his meteoric rise in the NFL looked like the result of a magical year, it was actually a lifetime in the making.

Raised in Paterson, New Jersey, Victor overcame numerous setbacks through hard work, perseverance, and the support of his loving family—from his grandmother who gave him his signature dance moves; to his late father, a former firefighter, who introduced him to football and taught him how to play; to his hard-working, single mother who never let him give up in the face of a challenge. They all helped to keep him on the right path, as did his coaches, but Cruzs journey was never easy. There were academic struggles, injuries, and more. In this inspiring, never-before-seen account, Cruz pays tribute to the people and places that made him the man he is today, recounts his most defining moments, and illustrates how his hardships ultimately unleashed his impenetrable will to win.

Who couldn't like Tebow and pretty much everything about him? Quite a few folks out there, surprisingly enough. Whether you love him or hate him, this book is a good read for fans and non-fans alike if you want to see what makes this guy tick.
