Unstoppable by Tim Green, 352 pages, read by Leslie, on 09/15/2013

Unstoppable

Inspired by interviews with real-life cancer survivors and insider sports experience, this unforgettable story shows a brave boy who learns what it truly means to be unstoppable. As a foster kid in a cruel home, Harrison knows his dream of playing in the NFL is a longshot…

This one hit home very realistically, almost like the son of a coworker whose son did not make it to a good ending.  I liked that he is given a shot at a good life with people who love him and that he survives to make his dream come true, although not quite as he envisioned before his cancer battle.  Definitely need a box of kleenex for this one.
