Kadeem is destined to be a star. He's a fantastic football player and has nabbed the attention of the recruiters from several top schools. Teller College in particular seems like a dream come true: hot cheerleaders are paying attention to him, he's getting the star treatment, and the recruiter is definitely making it worth his while. At first Kadeem is thrilled...but then he learns that not everything that's going on is above board. If he does the right thing, he might miss out on his chance to play college football. What is Kadeem going to do?
Recruited is another strong title in the Surviving Southside series from Darby Creek (Lerner). The books feature teens who act like teens and face troubles that are realistically depicted. At around 100 pages, it's not a long look, but it might be just the book for someone who hasn't found the right book yet.
