In the book behind the Academy Award–winning film, we first meet Michael Oher as one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack. He does not know his real name, his birthday, or how to read or write. He takes up football, and school, after a rich, white, evangelical family plucks him from the streets. Then two great forces change him: the family’s love and the evolution of professional football itself into a game in which the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Oher becomes the priceless package of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback’s greatest vulnerability: his blind side.

Editorial Reviews

“[Lewis] is advancing a new genre of journalism.” — George F. Will (New York Times Book Review)“?works on three levels. First as a shrewd analysis of the NFL; second, as an exposé of the insanity of big-time college football recruiting; and, third, as a moving portrait of the positive effect that love, family, and education can have in reversing the path of a life that was destined to be lived unhappily and, most likely, end badly.” — Wes Lukowsky (Booklist)
