Anything But Average (Paperback)
Author: Laureen Muir Heggie
They were born and raised to be anything but average—first-place achievers, nurtured by the traditional values of their rural conservative town in Southern Alberta. Best friends Steele, Luke, and McCoy not only face challenges of a farm and ranch lifestyle, but also adhere to the pressures of their high school senior year. They’re prepared to lead their teams to victory through another flawless season, with a successful sports program.
But, when Steele is introduced to a different way of life by some new kids in town, he decides to leave his team’s strict code of conduct behind. Drawn into a decadent world of drinking and partying, his behavior becomes increasingly erratic, causing conflicts at every turn. Soon, the Knightville football team finds itself minus top players—right before playoffs, as well as the derailment of a winning basketball program.
In a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) community built on morals, values, and integrity of character, will this small-town hero and football star choose to turn his behavior around? Or have Steele’s days as a top athlete and leader come to an untimely end?
Find out in Anything But Average, a captivating tale of friendship, community, rural life, winning strategies, character, and consequences. Similar to a Friday Night Lights story.
