Ultra Bowl by I.J. Weinstock

This book is more visceral than cerebral.   Football aficionados
will find it more palatable than the rest of the world.  I'm not sure it is a YA book but it reads as if it is.   An award winning football team is drafted to the future.

The premise of the book is a stretched version of the current concerns about the safety of football.   Recent players who have retired rather than play bring more feasibility to the premise of the book.   If you take automated pitchers from baseball or tennis ball throwing machines and project their genealogy into the future you might find the probability of the book increasing. 

Far fetched comes to mind when reading the book and that is from a die hard SciFi fan.   With that said, I enjoyed the book.   It was a fast paced read and carried some current concerns to a seemingly logical conclusion.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
