Raiders Night by Robert Lipsyte, Michael Miletic, Michael Miletic

What's it mean to think team? It means you don't talk team business with anybody who isn't on the team. It means whatever happens inside the team stays inside. It means you can only trust a brother Raider. Any questions?

At Nearmont High School, football stars are treated like royalty, and Matt Rydek has just ascended to the throne. He's got it all: hot girls, chill friends, plenty of juice to make him strong, and a winning team poised to go all the way. If he can keep his eye on the ball now, his future will be set. But when the team turns on one of its own, should Matt play by Raiders rules, or should he go long alone?

Lipsyte takes a very serious subject and creates a dramatic story that will stay with you for a long time. The characters struggle to find themselves in a HS setting surrounded by peer pressure, friendship, and the power of choices. Athletes, especially, will relate to the character struggles, but anyone could take something away from this story. Raiders Night is an important book to contemplate while trying to decide if you have the courage to do the right thing no matter the cost to yourself, your friends, and your team.

Lipsyte did a great job on this book and its a great read. Athletes can easily relate to this book. The author did well with the conflicts and that is what can keep you so tied in with this book. You can definitely tell that a good lesson you learn from the book is making good decisions in high pressure situations.

This book was a very well written book and this book caught my attention when I heard it was about a kid in high school that is on a football team and he starts doing some illegal stuff. The reason this is interesting because it kinda tells u what happens in some high schools.

Raiders Night, by Robert Lipsyte tells the story of an athletic teenage boy. He accurately describes the very difficult issues from steroid usage to relationship issues that face every teenage boy in this day and age. The main character, Matt Rydek, is the captain of the Nearmont Raiders and also a member of the "Back Pack" which is a group of football players who work out together and also shoot steroids together. Matt has a chance to play at the next level and his dad will not let him jeopardize that, which leads Matt to question who exactly is he playing for? His Raiders are the complete center of attention in Nearmont with the thought of a state championship and nothing can slow them down, not even a suicide attempt. This novel was an extremely easy read in which I was able to read in a very short amount of time. This book would be very interesting for a teenage guy since he would be able to connect more with the text than a girl possibly could. Another thing I liked about this book is how the author didn't leave anything out or try to butter things up. The author told his audience exactly what issues teenagers face and what methods they use to either push through these problems or cope with them in the use of drugs or alcohol. One thing that completely frustrated me was the ending to this book. The plot steadily became more and more interesting and all of a sudden the book is over. I think this book could have gone for 50-60 more pages to completely solve all the problems in this book, but instead the book just suddenly came to a screeching stop.

This is an ok book. Its not very exciting and even sometimes i got confused what is was talking about. There are a lot of cursing in it so not recomended for younger children. I would rate it a 2.5 out of 5

This book is very dumb and had no point whatsoever for it. I advise no one to read this really dumb book. It has nasty parts in it like shoving a bat up this guys butt and then the kid ending up killing himself. No one under the age of 100 should read this unless u are messed up in the head and have a sick mind a.k.a. domesticated. Do not read this dumb book.
