Payback Time

Payback Time

This story is automatically a page turner for middle school level. It brings every person in a high school society into action, the smart girl who wants to get into the big school, the football jock, the overweight guy, whose confidence isn't up to par. It can appeal to everyone, and that is what I liked most about this book. It also brings in a plot that investigates a mysterious character Angel, and keeps you guessing about what has truly happened to Angel. Payback Time is an easy read that brings in mystery to keep you guessing, recommended if you are looking for a sports type book, but has more than sports in it.
