The Rivalry By John Feinstein

A Review By Ishan

The Rivalry by John Feinstein is a mystery that takes place at the Army-Navy football game. The main characters are Stevie and Susan Carol. It all at started after the refs at an Army-Nortre Dame game. The refs call cheap penalties every time Army scored. Because of their calls bad calls at that game Army tried to change them for the rivalry Army-Navy game. Stevie becomes suspicious in the middle of the 3rd quarter because the refs have called penalties on every scoring play. Later the same quarter Stevie and Susan Carol find out why the refs are keeping the game scoreless. The refs were taken out of the game and replaced with ones that didn’t give penalties on every score. At the end, the game goes to overtime and the players and the crowd are still happy.
                I like this story because it becomes more interesting every time you turn the page. This book didn’t win any medals but I give it a Mr. Wuest one thumb up. I would recommend this book to people who like football and people who like mysteries. I rate this book a 9. It was good but it took too long to get to the mystery part. John Feinstein also has another mystery about football and he also has mysteries about baseball and basketball. I really liked this book and I hope you do to.
