In Million Dollar Throw by Mike Lupica, Nate Brodie is an 8th grade quarterback for his school's football team in Valley, Massachusetts.

His father has had to take a part-time job for which he is overqualified when he loses his job, his mother has to work two jobs and his best friend, Abby McCall is going blind. Nate's playing during the season is affected by these challenges as well as the stress of an upcoming football throwing contest in which he has the chance to win a million dollars.
