THE SUPER BOWL. America's biggest sports spectacle. More than 95 million fans will be watching, but Steve Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson know that what they'll be watching is a lie. They know that the entire offensive line of the California Dreams have failed their doping tests and that the Dreams' owner is trying to cover up the test results. These two teens are sitting on the biggest sports scandal of the decade. What they don't know -yet - is how to prove it.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libriar | 2/13/2014

    " Entertaining sports mystery for middle school boys - and girls. I'm glad I finally got around to reading one of Feinstein's books! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mel | 2/10/2014

    " This book drags in a way, but is a good story about sports. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cherylann | 2/6/2014

    " All I can say about this book is I'm finally finished with it. It was rather painful for a variety of reasons. First the subhead says, "Mystery at the Super Bowl." I read a lot of mysteries. I like cozies, I like thrillers, I just like the genre. I'm still trying to figure out what the mystery was in this book. Secondly, the characters are flat. Other than Stevie being short and Susan Carol being tall, there were no distinguishing features about these two. What makes them tick? Why are they motivated to write? And really at the end of the day Who cares? comes to mind when I think about them. Finally the writing was pedantic at best. YA lit is not usually known for a beautiful turn of phrase, but this writing is not only lacks beauty - it lacks any flair whatsoever. My most average middle school writer could have written a more engaging story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron Chung | 2/5/2014

    " This book was awesome. I really liked this book because I was into it and mainly because it was about football. I don't know about some people but I really like football so it was pretty easy to understand this book. This book was about two kids Steve Thomas and Susan Carol who try to prove that the offensive linemen for the California Dreams didn't pass their drug tests. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 2/2/2014

    " John Feinstein is great! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara | 1/27/2014

    " Read like a modern day Hardy Boys mystery (or maybe Nancy Drew because of the romance added in) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/20/2014

    " This modern style, cool book is pretty good. I gave it a 5 because I'm nice, though. I think there's room for improvement, but the action is nice and fast. I also like the blend of romance, and the character's expressions are expressed very thoroughly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 1/20/2014

    " Good mystery series - 15 year old boy/girl sports casters main characters - good for classroom library "

    " I liked this! It had an intresting plot and I really liked the characters. Some may ask "Whats with the 3 stars then?". I would simply reply, "It does not compare to the sequel." :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 12/16/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ally N | 12/9/2013

    " In this book, it is about two famous teenagers, who did mysteries at other sport games. They helped out a black mailed basketball player, uncovered a kidnapped tennis player, and now a mystery at the Super Bowl. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/13/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lexi | 12/31/2012

    " This book was better than I expected. Lots of names that were hard to keep track of, so I just went along with what was going on. This is a good book for any age of person who likes mysteries or sports books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ricky | 11/10/2012

    " Was okay. Susan-Carol was kind of repetative. LOL "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorena | 8/27/2012

    " I usually do not like to read books that include sports, but I was able to enjoy this book. The young reporters kept me interested as they worked to solve the mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan Stelter | 2/22/2012

    " Feinstein's use of current or recent NFL players or their names makes this book seem more like nonfiction. I had to remind some of my boys who read it that it was fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 10/15/2011

    " While the plot was a little contrived and certainly unbelievable, I really enjoyed this book - and I think my students would love it. Despite being the third in the series, it worked well as a stand-alone book, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bhavini | 8/21/2011

    " This is such a good book. It's really suspensing and you don't know what's gonna happen next. I liked it even more then I thought I would. I couldn't keep my eyes off the book. <3 =D "

    " The great thing about this series using kid reporters is how much I learn about the professional sports world. John Feinstein covers sports in the real world. I like him on NPR, and I like his YA books. One of these days I'll have to read his nonfiction books. "
