Kay.. so i havent exactly finished the book yet but im well over half way in it. and so far i think that while its true that he deserves his privacy, he really does need to get the medicine. i mean, seriously, he's with Dallas and its just not fair that she's told him her secrets and he still has yet to tell her. LESS THAN 1 YEAR!!!! junk noodles. well so far these are my thoughts.

Deadline by Chris Crutcher

Ben Wolf has big things planned for his senior year. Had big things planned. Now what he has is some very bad news and only one year left to make his mark on the world.

How can a pint-sized, smart-ass 17-year old do anything significant in the nowheresville of Trout, Idaho?

First, Ben makes sure that no one else knows what is going on--not his superstar quarterback brother, Cody, not his parents, not his coach, no one. Next, he decides to become the best 127-pound football player Trout High has ever seen; to give his close-minded civics teacher a daily migraine; and to help the local drunk clean up his act.

And then there's Dallas Suzuki. Amazingly perfect, fascinating Dallas Suzuki, who may or may not give Ben the time of day. Really, she's the first on the list.

Living with a secret isn't easy, though, and Ben's resolve begins to crumble...especially when he realizes that he isn't the only person in Trout with secrets.
