Wie schafft man es als deutscher American-Football-Spieler in die NFL? Die beeindruckende Geschichte von Sebastian Vollmer zeigt: Talent reicht nicht, genauso wichtig sind unbändiger Wille, Training und Liebe zum Sport.In diesem Buch gibt Vollmer bisher unbekannte Einblicke in sein Leben: Er erzählt, wie er mit zwei Koffern in den Händen und Sprachproblemen im Gepäck in Amerika ankam, dort die Liebe seines Lebens kennenlernte und feststellen musste, wie schwer das Privatleben mit dem extrem harten Job als Footballer vereinbar ist. Zu ständig neuen Verletzungen und unzähligen Operationen kommt noch der Druck durch die Öffentlichkeit, Trainer und Mitspieler. Doch der Ausnahmesportler biss sich durch, ergatterte 2003 ein Footballstipendium an einem US-College, schaffte 2009 den Sprung in die NFL und wurde schließlich als "Bodyguard" Tom Bradys zur festen Größe – und zum German Champion.

The answer will be yet another Wentworth twist.The Blind Side was originally published in 1939.

Believing his bullet has killed Noletta, the murderer flees. But later he finds out firsthand she has survived. However, his alarm quickly turns to smug complacency when he learns she has been blinded by his actions and can't recognize him. But Noletta's dog, which has now been trained as a guide dog, is another matter: it seems to remember that fateful day-and him. As detective Martin Atkinson investigates the theft of the dog, his instincts tell him there is more to this routine case than meets the eye.

Poulson once again delivers an action-drenched plot, believable characters, and heart-pounding suspense that make Blind Side impossible to put down. A must-read for LDS fiction lovers!
