Summary

The Blind Side: Evolution of a game is a true story about a boy named Michael Oher. He is a African American kid who grows up homeless and traumatized in the ghetto. He has been in and out of school for years. His mom was a drug addict he had it hard growing up. Until one day a woman by the name of Leigh Anne Tuohy and her husband Sean took Michael in and eventually became his Guardians and put him through schooling and he didnt have the grades to play football at first. So Michael got a tutor and became a tremendous football player and a kid who was smart in the books. People always doubted Mike so he showed them what it took to get what you want and became a first round draft pick in the NFL.

Theme

The story is about overcoming struggles in life with the love and support from others. The story also teaches you that you can accomplish anything if you put your mind to it and work hard. The story explains what it means to be a family.

Characters

The setting for the Blind Side takes place in the state of Tennessee. Michael was born in Memphis, He continued later years of his life at Briarcrest Christian School. He then went on to play football in college at the University of Mississippi.

I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys the sport of football. The book does a good job of explaining the job of an offensive lineman. This book also tells a powerful story about a kid who lived in a tough situation and how the love of strangers helped him succeed in life. A must read!
