The USA Today Lifeline Biographies series has the advantage of working with the titular newspaper, and many articles bolster the text. But as in all biographies of living subjects, the lag time between writing and publication can be a problem. Football player Tim Tebow’s biography suffers from the time gap. The book ends when he his traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, so there’s no discussion of his rather undistinguished season in the Big Apple. Tebow’s dedication to his Christian faith is particularly noted in a USA Today article that closes the book, but this is more about his football prowess than his religious zeal. Besides newspaper articles, the books’ spiffy design offers plenty of color photos and many, many sidebars that often take the text in new and interesting directions—for instance, the effect of social media on musical careers or how the college draft works and affects players. A time line ties events together. Grades 7-12, --Ilene Cooper
