Payback Time by Carl Deuker
So far senior year isn't going as planned. He didn't get elected to be the editor of the school paper. Instead it's Ashley, one of the worst writers on the staff. To make things worse, she's assigned Mitch the sports column! He is furious to be denied serious news in favor of sports.
But things aren't all bad. Mitch soon finds that his photographer will be Kimi, a cute and smart girl. Together they discover something strange going on with the football team. There's a new guy named Angel who is on of the best players Mitch has ever seen, but he's obviously holding back on the field, and the coach seems to hiding something, too.
As Kimi and Mitch dig into this mystery, things get more dangerous by the minute, and the facts just won't add up. Will Kimi and Mitch solve the mystery, become famous, and get accepted to exclusive colleges, or will they destroy themselves and others?
P.S. Deuker does a great job describing the football and volleyball games Mitch attends. If you're a sports fan, you'll love this one, but the mystery is so good the rest of us can enjoy it, too!
