Gym Candy

Gym Candy by Carl Deuker

This is the perfect book for the football and sports fan. This book looks at the competitive side of high school sports, and what an athlete might do to get an edge over his competition. Mick has always been a football running back, ever since he can remember. Trained since he was four-years-old by his father, a former college and NFL draft pick, he can’t imagine his life without the game. But Mick’s not the star of the high school team like he was in Pop Warner. He has to work, train and push for everything he gets, and even then the coach won’t start him because he’s just a freshman. But the real stress starts when a new coach comes on board in Mick’s 10th grade year. He makes first string, but the pressure causes him to make some hard decisions about how far he is willing to go to be a “star running back.”
