GYM CANDY, by Carl Deuker

Mick will do anything to be the best.   Anything.

Mick will do anything to be the best. Anything.

 A player in the NFL can make millions – but first you have to play college ball.  Before that, you have to be a star in high school.  When Mick feels the competition heating up, he drifts over to the Dark Side one step at a time: he starts with protein shakes and vitamin pills, but pretty soon it’s not vitamins anymore, and after that it changes from pills to shots.  They don’t test for drugs in his state, so what could go wrong? 

Great play-by-play football scences, and a true-to-life look at steroids in high school athletics.  If you’re a sports fan, this book will give you a whole different look at a touchy subject.
