I liked this book. Just not as much as Lupica or Feinstein. Kids who like those authors will definitely enjoy this book too. I'm just a little more nitpicky about a few things.

In this book we have a main character that is a school reporter rather than a football player. Mitch dreams of getting into Columbia University and becoming a top notch reporter. He didn't expect to be covering sports, but even in high school you take what you're given. When he and his photographer counterpart, Kimi, show up at tryouts looking for a story, they get one. New kid Angel has an amazing arm, but both he and the coach downplay his abilities. Something is not right. Angel usually plays late in the game, bringing the team back for a win, but any mention of Angel in his write-up to the Seattle Times gets edited out. There's no records in his student file. He refuses to talk to Mitch or Kimi. Like any good investigator, Mitch can't rest until he solves the mystery, but if he steps too far, he may do more harm than good.

The reason I don't rate this book as highly as Lupica, Green, or Feinstein books is that the premise is a little far-fetched. Although the situation that brought Angel to Seattle is possible, it's not likely. Furthermore, I don't buy the idea that high school students get this involved in investigative work. Unfortunately, I have a few other criticisms. 1) Mitch's character starts off being slightly sarcastic and fun. By the end he is all business. 2) I don't see the point of Mitch's character being overweight. It adds nothing to the story. 3) The ending is abrupt. I didn't feel a sense of closure.

Despite all of this, it's a good read, and it's going on my list of recommended football stories. ( )

This is a really good book and keeps you hooked right until the very end. I'd highly recommend this to other people. 4Q4P The cover art is awesome. I chose to read this book because I love the cover art. CaitlynnT

Mitch is a reporter for his high school newspaper. The new player is great before practice but when he plays in front of the coach he suddenly becomes mediocre. The team has a shot at a great season and a state title but the coach is not playing this new player. When Mitch investigates he learns some details that just might put him in danger. Can Mitch solve the mystery while keeping Kimi, his photographer and hopefully girlfriend safe? Read to find out. ( )

WATCH BOOK TRAILER

In pursuit of a killer story, Mitch is determined to find out the truth about a new football player, Angel, at his high school. As he starts asking tough questions, everyone’s lips seemed to be sealed about the player’s true identity. Mitch will do whatever it takes to find out who Angel is and what he has done. The truth will surprise everyone!

I've always been a fan of Deuker's fiction. His novels are inevitably lumped in with "sports fiction," which is fair enough since sports is at the center of his stories, but there is a lot more to them than just the sports action. Deuker is a pro at creating engaging multi-layered plots, with interesting characters and compelling themes. Payback Time is no exception. ( )
