Feb 15, Tee Whited rated it liked it. Miles Manning is an athlete at high school, that has big responsibilities and choices to make. He plays football and is the starting corner back on defense. A new coach sets him back and makes things really tough for him.
Also his friends have been pressuring him. Xrackback he be a follower and take after his friends carckback fit in; or should he make his own choice that will be better in the end.
This was a big year for the football team, they were favored to win the conference. That is a big deal, but t Miles Manning is an athlete at high school, that has big responsibilities and choices to make. That is a big deal, but the team knows that it is no guarantee. The season starts off well, and Miles is playing good.
As the season went on Miles found out that his teammates were taking steroids. Miles did them at first but was uncomfortable doing so. Miles likes the coach joun have now but he steps down, the new coach is Stahl. Miles does not like him. He soon benches Miles to second string. Everybody pressures him, and he gets overwhelmed. Although he handles it well, Miles has been through a lot. Their season is still alive, can he come back to save it?
This was a great book, if you are into sports.
