    A lot of boys are reluctant readers, tough nuts to crack for parents and teachers who want their kids to readMany of these boys are into sports, too some merely as fans, and others as actual players If you know a kid like this and you don t know about Carl Deuker, you should familiarize yourself with Deuker s growing work He s good at what he does, and what he does is chiefly sports, often with a secondary plot that goes beyond sports.PAYBACK TIME follows the familiar Deuker formula A lot of boys are reluctant readers, tough nuts to crack for parents and teachers who want their kids to readMany of these boys are into sports, too some merely as fans, and others as actual players If you know a kid like this and you don t know about Carl Deuker, you should familiarize yourself with Deuker s growing work He s good at what he does, and what he does is chiefly sports, often with a secondary plot that goes beyond sports.PAYBACK TIME follows the familiar Deuker formula Like GYM CANDY, it is centered around high school sports Like RUNNER, it contains elements of mystery Together these elements keep you reading as you try, along with the protagonist, to figure out what s going on.For this book, Deuker forgoes choosing a player for his protagonist and instead employs Dan Mitch True, the Lincoln High School sports reporter He got the name Mitch from initially being called Michelin Man due to his weight no doubt, he grew tired of it, too Mitch has noticed this highly talented player named Angel Marichal who is used infrequently but when necessary by the ambitious Coach McNulty When Mitch and his cameraman sidekick Kimi Yon ask for an interview and pictures, both Coach and Angel refuse.Suspicions aroused, Mitch and Kimi start to do some digging into Angel s past What they learn is disturbing butdisturbing still is that they are not getting all of the story As his heroes are Woodward and Bernstein of Watergate fame, Mitch wants to go to press, but going to press has consequences And that s where the pigskin hits the artificial turf in the case of this book consequences.Deuker has a way of writing football action that never gets old It s what he does well and football crazy boys especially will love it Wisely, he never writes a sports only book, but adds depth with other elements here the journalism angle And though I have to steal a star for ending s suspect credibility, I know that, overall, this will score big with Deuker s fans and with those new to him When you think YA and you think sports, Deuker is your go to guy in the red zone That s all there is to it

    A silly idea of reading a library selection at random brought me to Payback Time Let me say, this is not a book I would gravitate towards, especially in regards to the heavy sport involvement, but the main character, Mitch, and his fearless antics as a high school reporter had me oddly hooked Mitch and his partner, Kimi, are a duo that I loved While tasked together to report and photograph for the sports section, they notice a mysterious player, Angel, and slowly begin to piece together a pot A silly idea of reading a library selection at random brought me to Payback Time Let me say, this is not a book I would gravitate towards, especially in regards to the heavy sport involvement, but the main character, Mitch, and his fearless antics as a high school reporter had me oddly hooked Mitch and his partner, Kimi, are a duo that I loved While tasked together to report and photograph for the sports section, they notice a mysterious player, Angel, and slowly begin to piece together a potential conspiracy, a story that could jumpstart their careers The football commentary was a bore for me, however It didn t add anything useful to the mystery aspect, and I found myself skipping it once I realized this, but for someone who loves the sport, I could see it being a bonus Like I mentioned, I read it for my love of Mitch, and his determination to seek the truth Being an overweight character, given the nickname Michelan Man, there s also a bit of a side story on his journey to get in shape, which I thought added a little bit of charm to theserious tone of the plot I wasn t a fan of the ending, but overall I m not upset I gave this book a shot

    This story is about Mitch, a young high school journalist He hopes that one day he will be a journalist that will uncover some large, life altering news story, such as maybe Watergate or something similar His high school, Lincoln High School, has a school paper, which Mitch wanted to be the editor of Mitch was sadly disappointed when they gave him the sports column He is disappointed because he liked sports but being overweight he often was picked on and never participated in the sports, and This story is about Mitch, a young high school journalist He hopes that one day he will be a journalist that will uncover some large, life altering news story, such as maybe Watergate or something similar His high school, Lincoln High School, has a school paper, which Mitch wanted to be the editor of Mitch was sadly disappointed when they gave him the sports column He is disappointed because he liked sports but being overweight he often was picked on and never participated in the sports, and some of the people who picked on him now play the sports he will be reporting Some of first sport articles he must report are the football team s season and the volleyball team s season One day Mitch went to interview a player and saw a kid named Angel on the sideline Angel had obvious ability, so Mitch and his photographer Kimi thought When interviewing the coach about Angel, the coached said Angel was nothing to pay attention to Mitch decides to use his skills to intestate why Angel is looked down upon and not getting much playing time while having great abilities What is the reason Mitch and Kimi look to find this as the report games and Mitch loses weight to feelcomfortable with himself.I enjoyed this book for a couple different reasons, one being the play by play in the book of the football games as Mitch reports them being I m a huge football fan and another being the mystery and investigating off why Angel isn t played Something that wasn t enjoyed had to be the ending, it could have been explainedi believe I would suggest this book to high school boys that enjoy sports and mysteries

    This might be the first sports book I ve ever read Even if you know nothing about football, like me, the sports scenes are great My one big complaint about the book is the cliche that the author used about the kids with purple hair and tattoos being the druggie kids Does this guy really think that any kid who feels like dying their hair a bright color is a drug user Lame Other than that major annoyance, it was a fun mystery with a great main character.
