Barry Root. New. No Jacket Issued. Book CONDITION: NEW 2005 Scholastic large paperback, 1st thus, 1st printing. Wonderful color illustrations by Barry Root. CONTENT: Tiki and Ronde were each other's best friends. Together from the start, these twins might not have been the strongest or the tallest, but they were fast and worked hard at what they loved. And they loved sports, especially football. Then one day Tiki badly hurt his knee in a biking accident, and he was sure he'd never be able to play again. Their mother had always told them, "You are each other's best friends. Stick together, believe in yourselves, and you can do anything." They kept her words in their hearts and never gave up. Based on the childhood of National Football League superstars Ronde and Tiki Barber, this inspiring book about the values of family, hard work, and determination is the story of what it takes to be a champion. Introduces twin brothers Tiki and Ronde Barber, who worked hard to overcome obstacles and became National Football League stars, one as running back for the New York Giants, the other as corner back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although both brothers are retired now (and are regulars on TV sports programs), they are still an inspiration to twins and for determination. 1 copy.
