Seventeen-year-old Zeb Holloway is happy to work in his uncle’s auto repair shop and cruise through school without much effort. He’s a quarterback on his high school’s undefeated football team, but he never plays. Why would he when T.T. Munroe—a walking, talking highlight reel—is around? That is, until T.T’s injured a week before the state championships.
Now Zeb is starting. As he assumes the role of QB and team leader, the entire town is watching him. And when a college recruiter says Zeb could have a future beyond his small New Hampshire town, he realizes there’s a bigger life out there for him . . . if he can play his heart out.
One town, one game, one chance… 17-year-old Zeb Holloway is an ordinary kid living in an ordinary town in rural New Hampshire. Sure, he’s a quarterback on his high school’s undefeated football team, but he’s second-string and he never plays. Why would the coach play Zeb when T.T. Munroe’s around? T.T.’s a walking, talking highlight reel. That is, until he’s injured one week before the state championship game.
Now, Zeb’s tapped to start and it feels like the entire town is watching his every move. Girls want to talk to him, adults want to shake his hand, and a college recruiter says that Zeb may have a future beyond his small New Hampshire town. Set over the course of seven fateful days, Game Change is an unblinking look at life in rural America and an uplifting portrait of a boy on the brink of adulthood.
