The Blind Side (Movie Tie-in Edition) (Google eBook)
The book behind the Academy award-winning film starring Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw—over one million copies sold.
When we first meet him, Michael Oher is one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or how to read and write. He takes up football, and school, after a rich, white, Evangelical family plucks him from the streets. Then two great forces alter Oher: the family's love and the evolution of professional football into a game where the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Our protagonist becomes the priceless package of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback's greatest vulnerability, his blind side.

This was a very good book. Half inspiring biography and half a history of the left tackle position in football, Lewis ties the two stories together quite well for an interesting and touching read. A good deal like the movie, but with its difference as well. The book is always better. ;) Read full review

This book was very good, I liked it a lot because it shows a story of a warm and loving upperclass family who takes a poor kid and give him a life he would of never had. It also is a good book about the game of football. Read full review
