I read Gym Candy by Carl Deuker. This book is about a highschool freshman football player looking to find success in the sport. In one of his games, he struggles to do well and realizes he needs to get stronger. He goes to his local gym for help. He then gets offered steroids from his trainer. He refuses because he his determined to get stronger with weights. But then he sees he is not getting stronger. he goes back to take the steroids. He then gets much stronger, but there are multiple side effects to the drugs. When he and his friends go to the beach, he takes out a gun and tries to shoot himself. Gladly, he misses most of his head and takes off only a little part of it. The book was really interesting to read. At the same time, it was hard to see that the main character bought into taking steroids.
