Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser is from Joshua C. Cohen's Leverage, coming February 17 from Dutton Juvenile.

"You can't throw it out right away because someone might get suspicious," Bruce warns, deadly serious. "This mission isn't over yet. You've got to hold on to it, rinse it out and it should be good as new. I want to see you drinking out of it tomorrow at practice, you got it?" pg 66 in the ARC

Summary:

The football field is a battlefield

There's an extraordinary price for victory at Oregrove High. It is paid on—and off—the football field. And it claims its victims without mercy—including the most innocent bystanders.

When a violent, steroid-infused, ever-escalating prank war has devastating consequences, an unlikely friendship between a talented but emotionally damaged fullback and a promising gymnast might hold the key to a school's salvation.

Told in alternating voices and with unapologetic truth, Leverage illuminates the fierce loyalty, flawed justice, and hard-won optimism of two young athletes.
