Friday Night Lights
"Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team and a Dream" by H.G. Bissinger tells the story of Permian Panthers of Odessa - the most successful high school football team in Texas history. Odessa is a typical southern small town. In bad times, the unemployment rate barrels out of control; in good times, its murder rate skyrockets. But every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true.
