Alex Myers is a triple-threat athlete—great at football, basketball, and baseball. But he’ll have to fight for a spot on the varsity team. Alex is a quarterback, but from the first day of football practice, it’s clear that the position is very much filled by the coach’s son, Matt. Alex finally gets a chance to show what he can do when Matt is injured, and he helps win a key game to keep the Lions’ bid for the state championship alive. But just when his star is rising, Alex gets blindsided—the state has started drug testing, and Alex’s test comes back positive for steroids. Alex knows that’s not right. But he doesn’t know if it’s a mistake—or if someone wants to keep him off the field.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"[With] lots of play-by-play action, sensational plot developments, and an attractive, whip-smart, sports-crazy romantic interest…Feinstein skillfully captures the mania that surrounds high school football.” Publishers Weekly
“A cliffhanger of a football novel bristling with social, personal, familial and ethical issues to complement the gridiron action…All the goods for the sports enthusiast—and more.” Kirkus Reviews
