Simon and Schuster
A natural-born athlete, Jomo Rogers has talent that is easy to spot on the football field, and local reporters are taking notice. But the buzz keeps focusing on his potential, on his promise. Jomo doesn't want to be the "next big thing." He wants to be the real deal . . . in as little time as possible. He adopts a new workout regimen, complete with more weights, longer runs--and steroids. A gritty, witty, and eloquent youngadult debut, Shooting Star takes on the sports headlines and brings to the page a young man whose drive is about to make his life spiral out of control.
