Gym Candy by Carl Deuker

Gym Candy by Carl Deuker was one of the favorite books I read this past year. I'm not much of a football fan, but this book made me feel why people love to play football. Deuker describes things so well I felt I was actually in uniform looking out through the helmet. But this book is about so much more than football. Mick, the main character, must live up to his dad's dreams, and although Mick is a good football player, there are one or two better players vying for his position. Is there any way to make him stronger and bigger in a short amount of time so he can be a starter?
This is a great book that both boys and girls will enjoy.
