Deadline by Chris Crutcher
18 year old Ben receives a routine physical for the football team and learns that he has an illness that will allow him only one year to live. Instead of getting treatment, Ben decides to keep his diagnosis a secret and live the remainder of his life without anyone knowing. Crutcher delivers another great novel with football action and other heavy topics. The only thing that bothers me about the novel and his previous Sledding Hill is that they tend to get a little preachy. Yes we know Crutch is totally against censorship of any kind and again uses this novel as his platform. While the novel was good overall, I give it a Maybe.
