It was a smart choice to use a pair of narrators, James Shippy and Marc Samuel, for this joint memoir by twin brothers. Shaquem and Shaquill Griffin played youth sports together and vowed to do the same with college football. Now they both play for the Seattle Seahawks. The two narrators create individual identities for the brothers while keeping their dialogue straight for the listener. Both narrators do a fine job, especially with enunciating clearly. The story focuses often on Shaquem, who is an amputee; he is without his left hand because he was born with amniotic band syndrome. Shippy and Samuel provide energetic and gregarious portrayals of two young men who don't let anything get in the way of their achievements.
