    this book was really really good As soon as I saw it in the libraryI picked it up and read the back of it It sounded pretty good from the blurb so I took it out I finished the book in about 2 3 days because I couldn't put it down I really recommend it if your are into mysteries and basketball They use a lot of Basketball terms so if you don't really know the sport it might be a little confusing

    I loved this book I really liked the way that the story was laid out My favorite part was when Savvy made the two free throws because she won the game for her team I also really liked the way that the pills were introduced into the book I also think that Callie was not being a good sisterfriend She lied and she took the pills just so that she could get on varsity cheer I think she was being really selfish when she did this because she got Savvy in trouble for it I think that towards the end of the story Callie got better because she was nicer and honest I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes sports I think that this book is really good and I loved the plot twists

    Savvy an 8th grader who lives for basketball tries out for a high school age team and makes it knowing that she is going to have to work very hard There's a lot going on in her life the family has moved to be with an aunt on her farm because the PGA playing father has been disabled Savvy's cheerleader sister is struggling with eating disorders the aunt breaks her leg and Savvy has to pick up the slack on the farm and there is a romantic interest a boy whom Savvy likes but who dates her sister Wow On top of that there is the competition on the basketball court When anabolic steroids are found in Savvy's gym bag she is suspended from the team even though she doesn't know how they got there Won't give away the ending which was nicely foreshadowed Even girls who aren't into sports will like this one for the story Boys like stories about steroids enough that after they read Crackback Juice and Gym Candy they might look at this

    I really liked this book At some points it had me wondering what was going to happen next and then other moment I knew exactly what was going to happen because of the prediction i was able to make Throughout the entire book there were major ups and down that I was somewhat able to relate to So if you are a basketball player that goes through some things I really suggest this book for you
