ARC: Kingdom Quarterback

I am a Kansas City native and "Kingdom Quarterback: Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs, and How a Once Swingin' Cow Town Chased the Ultimate Comeback" by Mark Dent and Rustin Dodd is my book Super Bowl.

Any Kansas Citian will tell you how much they love their hometown, their hometown sports, and how close the city is to being something great.

And according to the book, it's always been that way.

The writing jumps between the history of Kansas City (from its founding to present) and the up-and-down saga that is the Kansas City Chiefs. It takes that feeling of being on the brink of something great throughout the history of the city, and makes Patrick Mahomes and the current Chiefs that something great.

If you're not a football fan, this book might not be your jam. But if you want to once again feel the rush of the 13 second game or of winning the first Super Bowl in half a century, this is your book.

Plus, I learned a lot about my city. Do you know how hard it is to explain the difference between Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas? I now know why both exist and have the perfect book chapter to show anyone who tells me I'm from Kansas (yes, I live on the Missouri side).

Stars: 4/5

Busy Girls Rating: 3/5

Thank you to Penguin Group Dutton and NetGalley for the advanced copy. It made this Kansas City heart so happy. Go Chiefs!
