Over a period of six months, the unimaginable has happened. Teen sports reporter Susan Carol Anderson has grown an inch, packed on muscle, and cut ten seconds off her fastest time in the 200-meter butterfly. Suddenly she's not just reporting on the Olympics, she's the It Girl of the Summer Games, a fresh face with a future as good as gold—and maybe worth millions in endorsements.
Her best friend (not to mention boyfriend) and fellow sports reporter, Stevie, is a little jealous. But more than anything, he's worried. Of course he wants Susan to win—who wouldn't want to see his girlfriend on the winner's platform? But something's not right. With agents everywhere and big corporate sponsors already making plans for Susan's future, could there be someone who's willing to resort to bribery and race fixing to make absolutely certain Susan wins?
