"And don't do anything stupid like try to run," he said. "I'd hate to have to get rough."

I looked hard. He was still in the shadow of the truck. His hands were out of sight. Did he have a gun?

After discovering tainted water in the creek near his grandmother's cabin in the Kentucky hills, senior Roy Linden slowly uncovers a connection between his high school team's new star quarterback, his own football future, and the source of the pollution. Roy Linden should be thrilled. His high school football team, the Johnstown Striking Cobras, just got a new quarterback, and that means a chance at a winning season and a college scholarship for Linden, the team's senior receiver. But then he stumbles onto a deadly secret in the small coal-mining town. Revealing this toxic threat may cost him his best friend and his football career. But remaining silent could cost him much more.
Puget Sound Council - September 1, 2009
"Combining a sports focused fiction book with the ethical questions facing the characters will provide readers with great discussion or writing response fodder. Written at a 4.0 RL, Brouwer's book will appeal especially to sports loving boys and older struggling or reluctant readers."
Resource Links - June 1, 2007
"Will appeal to those who enjoy sports stories...explores decision-making and standing up for one's beliefs."
CM Magazine - May 11, 2007
"An interesting and exciting action novel which will keep readers happy to continue right to the end. Highly Recommended."
