#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was probably the best quarterback ever to play for the legendary Messina Spartans. Fifteen years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into an unbeatable football dynasty.

Now, as Coach Rake’s “boys” sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake – or hate him. For Neely Crenshaw, a man who must finally forgive his coach – and himself – before he can get on with his life, the stakes are especially high.

Don’t miss John Grisham’s new book, THE EXCHANGE: AFTER THE FIRM!

    While I am a fan of John Grishim books, I have never been a fan of football.I picked up this book thinking I would never finish it. I began reading it this morning, have been unable to put it down.i read the entire book in one sitting. Mr. Grishim you have again written a most captivating story. A story which I have enjoyed enormously.thank you for putting pen to paper and again sharing your amazing gift with us. Kindest regards, Judy Quinn

    Not a legal thriller like the rest, but definitely just as good if not better! I felt the emotions building up inside of me as I read through this touching and emotional story. If you've ever played football in high school or even watched as a true fan then you must read this book!!

  • My favorite of all time

    I'm not one who reads books on the regular. Any man who played football in high school can relate to this book in one way or the other. For those who would like to go back and recall their own high school football life, this is a great book. It makes you think about the past and if we could go back and change something
