From New York Times bestselling author and former NFL player Tim Green comes a riveting stand-alone football novel about being a leader and finding your inner strength. Perfect for fans of Mike Lupica.

When Ryan’s estranged father unexpectedly dies, Ryan learns that he has inherited the Dallas Cowboys football team. With his new role as owner of this NFL team, Ryan has high hopes that he can be more than just a middle school misfit. Maybe he can even get off the bench and into the starting lineup of his own football team.

With the help of his friends Jackson and Izzy, Ryan takes advantage of his newfound stardom. He convinces his coach to use a tricky passing offense that plays to Ryan’s strengths. But just when things are looking up, Ryan’s nasty stepmother makes a legal play to make her own son the Cowboys’ kid owner. With drama heating up both on and off the field, Ryan quickly realizes he may lose much more than just the Dallas Cowboys.

    This book “Kid Owner” was originally written by Tim Green. It is a fictional football related story about a boy named Ryan and his struggles of maintaining an owner position of the Dallas Cowboys after his father passes and inherits his fathers role of the owner of the Dallas Cowboys but not only him but his step brother, Dillon. Ryan and Dillon compete for full ownership of the Dallas Cowboys for the majority of the book. Ryan later learns that giving up is not an option and he needs to power through all the obstacles no matter who he is facing or what the odds are. I recommend this book to those who like sports books and a character who thrives and perseveres till the end. This story is a thriller and an interesting story with lots of cliffhangers too. Interesting and Intriguing book, 4.5 stars out of 5.

                Kid Owner is about this 12 year old boy named Ryan Zinna. He loves football but his mom won't let him play until a certain age. Ryan was just a normal kid but until his dad, ( which he has never met before) dies, everything changed. He missed his dad's funeral but got to hear his will, he was shocked to find that his dad owned the Dallas Cowboys. And he wanted Ryan to own them. His stepmom pulls some stings and now Ryan might not have them after all. Now he has to compete against his stepbrother Dillon in his middle school football and the Cowboys. He only has his friends Izzy, Jackson, the Cowboys coach, and his mom on his side. How will he win? My favorite part is when Ryan is playing a football game against his stepbrother Dillon. He takes himself out of the game and lets another kid go in that hasn't yet. I really liked this book and if you like sports, football, or the author Tim Green. Then I recommend this book.
