JUNIOR MILER

When Andy Mason, football hero, is elected Captain of Clinton's team, it comes as a mixed blessing, since his father is simultaneously appointed principal of the school and vehemently disapproves of some of the antics of the team. The conflict between Andy's desire to be a member of the gang and his filial responsibility threatens to ruin his high school career until his interest in track running offers him a discipline which is a compatible both with his own aims and his father's standards. Despite the almost ""too good to be true"" quality of the people in this book, Lawrence Keating writes animatedly about the track, its challenge and its rewards.
