But first, for anybody who is just tuning in…
The Word on the Street:
“It’s a book about a whole bunch of chick kind of stuff but with football highlights” – The husband
“This was a fun, easy read that I didn’t want to put down, and if you’re local, used to be local, like Pittsburgh for no reason, are a Steelers fan, are a female, or just need something fun to read, get it! It’s only $3.99 on Amazon – about half the price of a Primanti’s Capicola and Cheese. Save yourself some calories and buy this instead.” – Jaci from For the Love of Lit
“…let me tell you: it totally captures the Pittsburgh essence.” – Susan from West of Mars
“Patty is probably the most interesting character because she’s someone you know, but not very well - she’s your neighbor down the street, she’s your aunt’s best friend – and the peek behind her curtain reveals the most surprising and compassionate results. I’m so glad Angela was included because it’s absolutely true that not everyone in Pittsburgh is a huge “bleed black and gold” Steelers fan, and it’s annoying when all your family and friends can’t make plans because there’s football on. The description of her desire to see the bigger picture outside the city, and her sometimes misguided attempts to protect Robbie from what she sees as his biggest problems, ring true. And Desiree is one of those people who seems like you would hate her but it turns out she’s really awesome. We all know people like that. Overall I would certainly recommend this book to people. It’s something that would be interesting to any reader, even if you don’t like football, and even if you’re not from Pittsburgh.” – Sandy on BeezusKiddo
“One of my favorite subtleties of this book is the way all 6 of the main female characters spill over into each others stories, in tiny little ways. That is exactly how life in Pittsburgh is; it is a big city with a small town feel, everyone seems connected. I thought that to be clever, and really skillfully woven into the stories without seeming artificial or contrived.” – Tiffany Harkleroad at Tiffany’s Bookshelf
“The characters cross paths, intersecting in often surprising ways, as they root for the Steelers, tailgate and party — or simply watch the games with family. Koozer juggles her characters expertly, and gives each one a distinctive and sympathetic voice. It’s common knowledge that the Steelers have one of the largest female fan bases in the NFL. It’s about time someone explored that. I’m glad it was Koozer. What Happens on Sunday is a wonderful novel.” – Kristofer Collins in Pittsburgh Magazine
