Shooting Star

For Ages: 12 and up
  • 2awards
A natural-born athlete, Jomo Rogers has talent that is easy to spot on the football field, and reporters and college recruiters are taking notice. But the buzz is focused on his potential, on his promise, while Jomo is ready to become the “next big thing” now. And since natural talent can only take a player so far, Jomo supplements his abilities with tougher workouts, more weights, longer runs…and steroids.

An edgy and eloquent debut novel, Shooting Star brings sports headlines to life and shows how a young man’s drive can result in his downfall.
