From New York Times bestselling author and former NFL player Tim Green, comes a riveting new stand-alone football novel, KID OWNER (September 29, 2015 Harper Collins Publishers), perfect for ages 8-12.

Kid-Owner-book-coverFans will have the opportunity to meet Tim Green and listen to his inspirational message, on Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m., at the downtown Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield, 203-255-7756.

In KID OWNER, when Ryan’s estranged father unexpectedly dies, Ryan learns that he has inherited the Dallas Cowboys. 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.

“With his signature short, cliff-hanger chapters and snappy dialogue, Green has produced another smooth, well-crafted middle grade sports novel.” — School Library Journal

“Ryan is believably naive and dazzled by his new situation. Sports fans will be, too.” — Booklist

Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He’s the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated co-valedictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR.

His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best.

Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York. Copies of KID OWNER will be available for purchase/signing at the downtown Bookstore event.
