12-year-old Tommy Gallagher is the toughest kid on the football field. And the bravest. After all, his father Patrick is a Boston firefighter, who taught him nearly everything he knows about football--and life. Tommy knows his dad has the overnight shift at the firehouse and will be late to his Saturday morning game. Still, Tommy can't help wishing his dad was up in the stands watching as Tommy returns an interception for a touchdown. Yet as he crosses the goal line, Tommy hears them. The sirens. More sirens than usual--a large fire. And Tommy knows his dad isn't likely to make this game in time. What Tommy doesn't know is that his dad won't make any of his games ever again. His dad's mantra of "First man in; last man out" wasn't supposed to end this way. With his hero gone, Tommy must come to terms with being the man of the family, and grow up as fast on the football field as he does off of it. Set in New England, home of the Patriots football dynasty, Mike Lupica shows off his trademark knack for spinning a tale that's equal parts sports action and heart. A story with family values and deep emotional resonance, LAST MAN OUT is a thoughtful tribute to the bravery of firefighters and the need we all have to live up to the lives of our heroes.
