The Starter is the sequel to The Rookie, a hard-hitting, bone-crunching YA sports/sci-fi novel described as The Blindside meets Star Wars meets The Godfather. The Starter is a star-spanning, coming-of-age space opera combined with the gritty world of organized crime, all set against a backdrop of a far-future professional football league. In The Rookie, nineteen-year-old rookie quarterback Quentin Barnes overcame his racism and unified his team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Twists and Surprises Another awesome book in the GFL series! Absolutely loved the dire situation the Krakens were in, and the way Quentin handled difficult circumstances. Some great twists and surprises in here. Really can't wait to read the next book!
