Summary
Overweight, somewhat timid Mitch reluctantly agrees to be the sports reporter for the Lincoln High newspaper because he's determined to be a writer, but he senses a real story in Angel, a talented football player who refuses to stand out on the field--or to discuss his past
Summary
Mitch True dreams of one day being an investigative journalist and blowing the lid off of a big story -- but he can't imagine writing any juicy exposés on his beat as a team-sports reporter. Disappointed that he wasn't picked to be editor of the school paper, Mitch tackles his assignment writing about the football team grudgingly at first, but then he notices something fishy. And when he starts digging for answers, the situation gets dangerous -- and ethically dicey. Delivering exciting on-the-field action as well as ever-increasing suspense, Payback Time should please fans of both football and intense, gripping reads. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
