  • This book is an ok book. It was pretty interesting on how he overcame his fear and how you should not be judged. All of these kids thought this kid had no chance making it and now he's the STAR QB. This book is for you if your a person who likes surprises and big changes.


  • I read the book, "Comeback Kids, Two-Minute Drill." I very much liked this book and wanted to keep reading it. I liked everything about this book and how he had to face many struggles through out this book. It is by far one of my favorite sports books that I have read. The way that this book started all the way to the end was very good. This book started off when Scott went to a new school and was thinking about joining the football team. He decided that he wanted to join so he did. He was not v [...]


  • Scott was the new kid in school. It has always been hard for him to fit in at school. Sometimes he wishes he was not such a brain and more of an athlete. HE wishes he was more like Chris- the most popular kid in school and the starting quarterback for the Eagles. Scott ends up becoming best friends with Chris and Chris encourages Scott to join the football team. But there was one kid that terrorized Scott when he joined the football team and that kid was Jimmy Dolan. I compare this book to the U [...]



  • ReviewPersonal Response(In your own words) This was a good book, because there was a lot of action. I like how Chris thinks he can not play football, and thinks he sucks at it. Instead he is actually really good at kicking, and nobody knew. Nobody ever knew, because he never really showed it, and was shy to.Plot(Events that take place) There is a kid named Scott that moved to a new town, and started getting bullied by a kid named Jimmy. He took Scott's picture of his dog and would not give it ba [...]


  • Personal response-Two-Minute Drill by Mike Lupica was an inspirational book for me. It refreshes the lesson to me which says being good at something won’t get you everywhere. It’s having passion in something, loving it, working hard at it, and just giving the best effort that counts. If the reader doesn’t have that attitude then then there is no point in trying to do something. If the reader does they won’t give up on their dreams just because other people aren't respectful or care about [...]


  • Well there is this kid named John. He has a foot ball field in his back yard and he loves kicking field goals. Then he meets a friend named Chris. then they try out for a football team ey make it they go undefeated then they reach the championship en they have fourth down at the end o the game they have to kick it and john nails it .I think the book was good book because it had good point. Because it’s about a kid who gets bullied. Then he did a tryout and for a team and makes it. But the whol [...]


  • I read the book "Two-Minute Drill" by Mike Lupica. This book kept me wanting to read. I enjoyed this book from start to finish. There was not a dull moment in the book where there was not something going on. This book is about a young boy name Scott Parry. He is the new kid in town and is not very athletic at all. What he lacks in size and strength, he makes up for with his brain. He is by far the smartest kid in his class. He feels as if he will go through another year all alone when something [...]


  • I read the book "Two-Minute Drill" by Mike Lupica. Mike Lupica used great details and made me feel like I was in Scott’s shoes. I enjoyed this book from start to finish. I liked everything about this book and how Scott had to face many struggles throughout the story.This book started off when Scott went to a new school and was thinking about joining the football team. Chris Conlan, the best football player in the school, convinced Scott to join the football team. He was not very good and never [...]


  • Two-Minute Drill was a good book. In the book a boy named Scott loved football, he wasn’t good at it; Scott was smart when it comes to school. Another boy named Chris that played football was really good, but had dyslexia. There was also a bully named Jimmy Dolan that didn’t like Scott. During the book Scott had to help Chris with school, so Chris can still play football. Then Chris would help Scott with football. The only confusing part about the book is the words they used like straight-ar [...]


  • GREAT BOOK.LOVE THAT THIS KID,SCOOT,HOW DOESN'T GIVE UP ON WHAT HE WANTS TO DO,AND THAT IS PLAY FOOTBALLE ENDING IS THE BEST PART BECAUSE HE DOES A DROP KICK TO WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP. COOL THAT HE HELPS OUT HIS BEST FRIEND,CHRIS CONLAN,ON A TEST BECAUSE HE HAS DYSLEXIA.WHAT'S ALSO COOL IS SCOOT HELPS CHRIS ON SCHOOL AND CHRIS HELPS SCOOT ON FOOTBALL.I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO PEOPLE WHO LIKE SPORTS OF THE COOLEST SPORTS BOOKS I EVER READ.


  • I loved this book it is all about football. It is all about a boy named scott and scott is an extrely smart. He joins the football team and everyone is amazed that this "nerd" is on the team, but they dont know about scotts speed. The star quarterback is nice to scott and he also has a hidden secrate. This secrate could get him taken off the team. You have to read the book to find out.


  • I can really relate to scott in this book I am new at foot ball but i have not gone in yet. The book was good scott had a hidden talent that he could kick and in the end the QB gets injured and they kick a feild goal and win the championship.I really liked the book and think that i will check out more books by this author


  • I liked how there was lots of action in the book, especially when they were playing football. There were some secrets in some parts of the book - like when Scott was really good at - whoops, you should read the book yourself!


  • I will be the first to admit that this was not a book for which I was an ideal, or even intended reader. I read it specifically as part of an "outside your reading zone" challenge, where I decided sports books were about the only thing I don't habitually read. However, my problems with the book stem not from a generalized "meh, not for me", but from an active dislike of the problematic messages in the book. This wasn't about genre, it was about hurtful messages aimed at children.(view spoiler)[T [...]


  • How does Mike Lupica do it? How does he create heartachingly endearing, believably flawed characters every time he writes a new novel, kid protagonists one can't help but love by the last page? Mike Lupica isn't just "money" when it comes to writing wonderful young characters: he's "cash money", to borrow a line from Scott Parry's father in Two-Minute Drill. Whether they're sports stories for older kids such as Heat, The Big Field, and The Underdogs, or elementary schoolers like the Comeback Kid [...]


  • I thought “The Comeback Kids: Two Minute Drill” was a great book about a kid who had just moved to a new town and made a friend. Scott Parry a sixth grader had just moved to a new town and didn't have any friends. He was the smartest person in class and answered all of the questions. Before getting on the buses one day he was being bullied by Jimmy Donlan one of the best kids on the football team. After Jimmy dumped out all of Scott's books out of his backpack Jimmy found a picture of Scott [...]


  • In the story “Two Minute Drill”, Mike Lupica, Scott tries too be a good football player. In his efforts he gets denied by many different circumstances. One day he meets the quarterback Chris, and his teammates. He gets along with Chris very well, on the other hand few of his teammates made fun of him. Chris and Scott try to avoid this by going to Scott’s house, when he gets there Chris says,”I’m quitting the team”, Scott was confused. It turns out that Chris was failing classes. So S [...]


  • This book was OK cause it should someone who wasn't like the best or anything like that stand up to others who tried to put him down and in the game he was the one that made the big play to win the game for them


  • i like this book a lot because it is about football. the best part in the story is when the bulley lisend to some one younger then him.





  • My novel was about a new kid Scott that had a hard time making friends with others but when he joins the football team he makes friends and becomes one of the best football players on his team. i gave the book the rating 5 because Scott had a goal to make the football team and he did. the age is 12 and up so they could be old enough to under stand it.


  • In the book mike lupica's come back kids there are two main characters and they are very different and the same at the same time they. Scott is the new kid that is nerdy is really smart because he has no life people say and is very clumsy. Chris is the cool kid in the school and he is the star of the football team, but his football career is a stake. Chris has been keeping a secret for quit some time now and if anyone finds out. Because Chris can not read he may not be able to play football his [...]

  • Mike Lupica’s Come Back Kids is about boys named Scott and Chris. One day the bully Jimmy gets in a fight with Scott. Chris comes over and breaks it up. Then Chris and Scott start to hang out. Chris got Scott into football. I liked this book because it’s about football, and I play football so I understand it.It had really great football parts but here’s three I like most:1. Their coach, Mr. Dolan, hates punting. In the last game there are a few seconds left. He decides to punt! He ends up [...]


  • "Two-Minute Drill" by Mike Lupica is another great sports inspired book. I know all of these books about sports are great stories and some can be inspirational. I loved this book and could relate to some parts of the book. This book is about a young boy name Scott Parry. He is the new kid in town and is not very athletic at all. For not being very athletic, though, he is a very smart kid. He is most likely the smartest kid around. He feels as if he is a nobody and nobody notices him until a popu [...]


  • Scott Parry was the smartest kid at all of his schools. Except he had competition, not with school but with the bully, Jimmy Dolan. One day on the bus Jimmy shoves Scott and all his books fall on the floor he constantly waits for him to stop but he won't and then out of the corner of Scott's eye he sees the coolest kid in the school Chris Conlan. Chris goes up to him to help pick up his books and makes Jimmy leave. And, that is what started Scott's football career. Scott kept on coming to games [...]
