Summary: Helped by his father to be a star player, football is the only thing that has ever really mattered to Mick Johnson, whose dedication and hard work can get him a spot on the varsity team his freshman year, then tries to hold onto his edge by using steroids, despite the consequences to his health and social life.
Gut reaction: My favorite book of all time.
Why: As an athlete this touches my heart. If you thought steroids make better athletes, then get ready to change your mind. The story never bores you whether the scene is a football game or a simple conversation with Mick and his father.
Who would like this book: People who like football. And reading about the struggles of an athlete.
