The Spielmans lived in the same city as I currently do, so it was neat to see places I know pop up in the story. I'd heard about Stefanie Spielman for years, but didn't really know the whole story of her fight with cancer and eventual death. I really enjoyed the story but gave it a lower rating because there was a LOT of football talk and I am just not a sports person. I have a hard time reading about sports and sports plays, team trading, etc. For that reason there were portions of the book I skipped completely-- otherwise, it was an entertaining read.
