Wow! Deuker has come up with a book that is as amazing as Gym Candy! (I haven't read Runner yet though). I think this book is excellent because it has play by play on the field football action. Will be a great "hook" for the reluctant male reader. What I like about this book is that the on field action plays a 2nd role. The main character is a dorky overweight high school journalist who just happened to have sports assigned to him his senior year. Then he finds out their may be a scandal on the football team. Deuker pulls you into the mystery and the football action sometimes gets in the way! I couldn't put the book down.
A fast, enticing, intriguing read!! LOVED IT!
