Last Man Out by Mike Lupica

This book is about a boy named Tommy Gallagher. Tommy’s passion is to play football. Tommy’s dad is a firefighter at the local fire department. Then one day Tommy and his team are playing another team and then all of a sudden in the middle of the game Tommy heard lots of sirens start to go off. Then when he looked in the stands Tommy saw his mom on her phone. So as the game progressed Tommy looked back into the stands and his mom wasn’t there. Then he saw his mom crying on the sidelines talking to the coach. Tommy now had to leave the game knowing of what just happened to his father.
