The smart thing would be to blend in, but Danny has always been about making <i>statements</i>. <p></p> <b>Brady</b> just wants to get out. Go to college, play football, maybe reach the NFL. He definitely wants to stop waiting for his deadbeat mother to come home, sleeping on park benches, and going to bed hungry. But first he has to lead the team to the championships. It all adds up to a lot of stress. So who can really blame him when he and the football team turn their aggressions on the new freak? Even the quarterback needs to blow off steam sometimes. <p></p> <b>Coach</b> turns a blind eye to his players' crimes--because this year, they're going to State. But maybe if Coach had paid more attention they could've caught it before it all happened. Maybe it could've been avoided. <p></p>Maybe. <p></p>With quick cuts between a large cast of unforgettable characters, and razor-sharp plotting, Tom Leveen takes readers on a countdown to an inevitable, horrifying act.
