Review by Zac
Overall Rating
Snap Decision by Nathan Whitaker follows 8th grade football player Chase Clark who gets the chance to play on the varsity football team. Besides just being excited to play on varsity, Chase gets to play with his best friend, Tripp. All is good until a hard hit takes Tripp down and Chase is the only one who tells what truly happened. Tripp gets mad at Chase and their friendship is on the line. While Chase knows he did the right thing, he struggles with whether it was really the best thing to do.

I enjoyed the concept of this story. I hated to read growing up, and this book sounded like one I would have enjoyed. There were parts of the story that I got into and others that felt like it was just being used as filler space. This was the most frustrating part for me, as I wanted to get going with the story, and I felt like I was not really moving forward.

I did appreciate the spiritual elements in this story and I think the situation Chase is in can be relatable to many kids. I also liked the role model character for Chase as well. I think this showed the positive impact a young Christian can have on another.

While I found positive elements in this story, I was really disappointed about the pace. I got board while I was reading and I think I would have when I was younger as well. Unfortunately, this was the case for me because I liked the concept of the story and I think the lessons in the book are beneficial for many.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. (Posted on 8/3/2014)
