Description

Booklist Top 10 Sports Books for Youth: 2015


Pound by sweaty pound, Greg Dunsmore's plan is working. Greg is steadily losing weight while gaining the material he needs to make the documentary that will get him into film school and away from the constant jeers of "Dun the Tun."


But when Greg captures footage of brutal and bloody hazing by his town's championship-winning lacrosse team, he knows he has evidence that could damage as much as it could save. And if the harm is to himself and his future, is revealing the truth worth the cost?

Praise For Press Play

“This is definitely a Devine novel; there's so much sweat, blood, and adrenaline that you almost need to wring out the pages. . . . A tough, smart look at weight issues, self-respect, and our intrinsic desire to belong at all costs.”

“[A] page-turner.”
