Things Change

Written by Troy Aikman

Things Change is about Troy Aikman's life and how things change. It begins when Troy was born with a club foot. Troy wanted to be a pro in baseball. When he moved he gave up that dream and began a new dream. His new dream was to play football. To find out if his dream comes true read the book.

My favorite part was when Troy signed a contract for 11 million dollars to play for the Dallas Cowboys. The character that I thought was interesting was Troy because he never gave up. This story reminded me of when I moved and things changed. I thought that it was good because I learned more things about Troy Aikman.

I recommend this book because it tells you never to give up. Anyone who likes Troy should read this book because it talks about his life. I think readers will like the part when they talk about Troy growing up. I recommend this book for boys ages 8-12 because that age loves to read about football players.
