Firestorm by David Klass.

His mother is not his mother. His father is not his father. And if Jack hadn’t broken the high school rushing record that night, nothing would have changed. He’d just be going out for pizza, playing football, trying yet again to score with his girlfriend, P.J.

But he did break the record. He appeared on the news. And now they have found him.

Ripped from the only world he has ever known, Jack plunges into a space-time–bending game of survival with no way out.

After centuries of abuse, the earth is dying, and it's up to Jack to reverse the decline before the Turning Point, when nothing will ever be the same again. Beaten into shape by a ninja babe and a huge telepathic man's best friend, Jack hurtles across the ocean to save the future from the present and to solve the mystery of his purpose.
