The book I read was written by Eric Walters and is called “Juice”. The book “Juice” was about a football Star named Michael Monroe (nicknamed Moose). “Juice” takes place in a small farm town in Georgia. The book starts off with Moose’s team winning the state championship. Which after they win later in the locker room Moose’s coach announces to his team that he has decided to retire from coaching? So it’s announced that a Division 1 coach, which is the level above Moose’s High school, is interested in coaching for this team if he receives money to redo the whole Football program. So this new coach buys all new equipment and a fully revamped state of the art training facility. To Moose and all the other Team all this sounds wonderful and dandy but they feel something is weird. This new coach even has a strength trainer that is going to work with them throughout the summer to help them get ready for the upcoming season, who also worked with professional football players. So as Moose continues to show up each day to lift weights and train this new trainer feels as if training the right way isn’t enough, and is starting to put some “extra” ingredients into the player’s shakes. So then comes the day when Moose shows up and this trainer pulls him aside to offer him some Anabolic Steroids. Now Moose is faced with the decision of taking them and being on of the best player to ever go to this High School. Or just working his hardest everyday to improve and being the best he can while being the true winner.
”My thoughts on the Book”
The book “Juice”was a very action filled and suspenseful book I felt. There was some things I disliked as well as that I liked. I really like this Book because it had it’s up’s and it’s down’s and that you could really feel the suspense arising. As well as it applied a lot to what an athletes decision could be. I don’t want to give the book away but I was very disappointed with Moose’s decision in this book. I liked the book “Juice” a lot and would recommend it to anybody sports lover or not. If I was to rate this book 1-10 I would most defiantly give it a strong 7.5.
