Miles barely recalls when football was fun after being sidelined by a new coach, constantly criticized by his father, and pressured by his best friend to take performance-enhancing drugs.
When Miles Manning, a successful high school football player, discovers his teammates are using steroids—and one of them is his best friend—he’s faced with a tough decision: Is he willing to do what it takes to win? Football is his life, and his family, especially his dad, is pinning its hopes on him. It’s a lot of pressure for a high school junior to bear. This gripping look into the world of high school boys and athletes—and their struggle to be the best—is provocative and searingly honest.
