Sintesi dell'editore

Running back Mick Johnson has dreams: dreams of cutting back, finding the hole, breaking in to the open, and running free with nothing but green grass ahead. He has dreams of winning and of being the best. But football is a cruel sport. It requires power, grace, speed, quickness, and knowledge of the game. It takes luck, too. One crazy bounce can turn a likely victory into sudden defeat. What elite athlete wouldn’t look for an edge? A way to make him bigger, stronger, faster?

This novel explores the dark corners of the heart of a young football player as he struggles for success under the always glaring - and often unforgiving - stadium lights.

©2008 Carl Deuker (P)2013 AudioGO

“A solid sports tale with a valuable message.” ( Kliatt)
“Deuker skillfully complements a sobering message with plenty of exciting on-field action.... [A] solid addition to the sports fiction shelf.” ( Booklist)

Great message, great story

My students, especially the boys, love this book. It takes the reader through a boy's usage of steroids and makes us understand how he makes that choice. The main character is believable, and I spent the entire book telling him not to do it, while understanding why he did.

Scaryness of highschool sports

Loved this read. Brings up the scary presures that youth athletes have to deal with.

100% shows how willing people are to achieve their goals

I loved this book. I am a football player so it caught my eye since it was about football. We learn from the beginning of the book how much Mick loves the sport and how he is working his a** off the be the best. When he isnt the star no more when he is in high school, it makes you think about how willing you are to get results and it shows it perfectly.

Really good.

I relate to Mick a lot. I’m a running back too, and I know what Mick means when he feels like he’s a hummingbird, or a bull, or a bullet. It is REALLY good. The performance is not great though.

Memories

I read this back in high school. Just as good, if not better listening to it 10years later.

Terribly lame morality play...

Poorly written, completely predictable, irritatingly voiced tripe designed for 13 year olds. Don't waste your valuable time. If that's not bad enough, the protagonist is a total putz.
