This is a really good book! "Why" It's about the superbowl and it covers the actually loss of the winning team due to an illegal player. Q4P4 AHS/Conner C.

Stevie and Susan Carol return for a 3rd book. They must save the Super Bowl from an owner of an expansion team who is trying to cover up a failed drug test. ( )

I was frankly amazed that I liked this novel. I am not, by any means, a sports fan. This is an interesting story, however, and the two teenage protagonists are engaging and likeable characters. The setting--the SuperBowl--is one any reader can identify, and the behind-the-scenes view of the big event and the media circus which surrounds it is very interesting and believably written. My biggest criticism is that the characters, who are supposed to be savvy and mature journalism professionals beyond their years, are sometimes a bit too savvy-sounding to be entirely believeable.

This book would've been the strongest of the series, if it hadn't fallen into the same plot device that Blue Balliett's Chasing Vermeer/The Wright 3/The Calder Game series had: the same people stumbling upon huge cover-ups. Even though I like this story more than the other two, it seems incredibly improbable that these kids would continue stumbling upon huge cover-ups that rock sports to it's very core.

The writing's strong, the characters are well written, and the plot's pretty good. But I can't get over that gargantuan plot device to make a single book a trilogy. ( )

This is another great author to recommend to your sports kid- both boys and girls! ( )

THE SUPER BOWL. America's biggest sports spectacle. More than 95 million fans will be watching, but Steve Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson know that what they'll be watching is a lie. They know that the entire offensive line of the California Dreams have failed their doping tests and that the Dreams' owner is trying to cover up the test results. These two teens are sitting on the biggest sports scandal of the decade. What they don't know -yet - is how to prove it.
