About the Author

Carl Deuker describes his younger self as a classic second-stringer: "I was too slow and too short for basketball; I was too small for football, a little too chicken to hang in there against the best fastballs. So, by my senior year the only sport I was still playing was golf." Combining his enthusiasm for both writing and athletics, Deuker has written many exciting, award-winning novels for young adults.

Gym candy is about a high school football running back and is forced into something that he never had even imagined before his personal trainer recommended it. he wanted to be bigger and do physical stuff longer. Mick ended up taking the steroids that his trainer put him on and was the starting running back by the end of the summer. once his friend drew, the starting QB for shilshore high, suspects something is up he tries to see what is happening. the entire book was well wrote and was a good read for everyone even if you dont like sports. i recommend this book to anyone who likes books that make you want to turn the page and keep reading.

I just finished reading this book. I really loved it. All of the books I have read by Carl Dueker are awesome. I really liked this book because it kinda let you almost be in Mick's shoes.

This book shows knowingness of the ability of how to write an intersting book. I first thought when I read this it would be good at most, but it blew away my expectations with its ability to picture the image in my head. I could see them on the weight bench with everyone standing around, going up and down with their 180's. One was draggor but I cant reacall the other ones name... Overall an amazing read and I would definately reconmend it.

But i call it Destiny Gym, the gym of all types, and leader is pokemon girl, the winning beauty! Im looking for challengers in pokemon black and white or pokemon heartgold and soulsilver! For i have the games white and soulsilver! If any of you think you wanna take a challenge, just leave me at my gym page the game you will challenge me in, trainer name in that game, friend code, and thats all! You may choose to switch your team around before you battle me, but i will still be hard to beat! This message is from pokemon girl!

Gym Candy is an excellent read that I think would mostly apply to kids in high school, but anybody who plays football will definitely in enjoy this well written book. Carl Deuker tells a story about Mick and his experiences with vivid details and just the right words for you to feel like you're on the field in Mick Johnson's football cleats. If you enjoy reading, I recommend this book and even more so If you like football. -Jack

Really great book!

A mysterious trainer. He's the newest Leader, although he's quite a force to be reckoned with. He is accepting all challengers he deems worthy at his gym in the eighth result. Come at your own risk. (Post)
