Playing for Pizza by John Grisham MAG

By Tyler Comella, Glendale, AZ

This could well be one of John Grisham’s best. Playing for Pizza is about Rick Dockery, a man who loves football. Because he plays for so many teams, he never really establishes himself and always seems to do something wrong. The story focuses on a small town in Italy called Parma, where Rick has resurrected his career. He also meets a lot of girls who do not interest him.

This is very touching story that many can relate to. This book will make you want to read all of Grisham’s novels; I know this from experience. It makes you feel as if you are the one telling the story. I like this book because it allows the reader to see how someone who has hit the lowest point can turn their life around and come out on top.
