Pregame the Super Bowl with our favorite football fiction
Briefly

NPR has curated a list of books to get readers ready for the Super Bowl. The list includes a young adult novel called Punching the Air, which follows a basketball player who joins a football team after getting kicked off her team. Another recommended book is The Dating Playbook, a romantic comedy that explores football, concussions, and social media. The list also features The Other Princess, a young adult novel that tackles the topic of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a brain injury prevalent among football players. Overall, the book recommendations cover a range of genres and themes related to football and the Super Bowl.
