Review: In his first novel Coy writes a moving portrait of a teen struggling with adults who demand, but don't always deserve, respect. Miles feels at odds with his teammates, who have turned to steroids. Coy's strong first-person voice connects the story's diverse elements--family secrets, his father's rage, a budding relationship, football, and changing friendships.
