Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Gym Candy explores the dark corners of the heart of a young football player as he struggles for success under the always glaring – and often unforgiving – stadium lights. Running back Mick Johnson has dreams: dreams of cutting back, finding the hole, breaking in to the open, and running free with nothing but green grass ahead. He has dreams of winning and of being the best. But football is a cruel sport. It requires power, grace, speed, quickness, and knowledge of the game. It takes luck, too. One crazy bounce can turn a likely victory into sudden defeat. What elite athlete wouldnt look for an edge? A way to make him bigger, stronger, faster?

About the Author

Carl Deuker participated in several sports as a boy. He was good enough to make most teams, but not quite good enough to play much. He describes himself as a classic second-stringer. Carl still loves playing golf early on Sunday mornings at Jefferson Park in Seattle. Combining his enthusiasm for both writing and athletics, Carl has created many exciting, award-winning novels for young adults. He currently lives in Seattle, Washington, with his wife and daughter.
