Reviewed by Kelly Atwood for Readers' Favorite

“Out of Bounds” by Bob Moseley is the gratifying and intriguing story of Jason Jefferson, an injured high school football player who turns to journalism while recovering from a torn ACL. Jason begins writing for the school newspaper after being inspired by a film in his journalism class. Naively Jason dives into investigative reporting trying to emulate his heroes Woodward and Bernstein, and ultimately uncovers a real scandal at his school that lands a little too close to home. Jason must grapple with his desire to hold on to his friendships, or save the people he cares about while investigating a story that could affect the lives of everyone at Hillsboro High School.

Bob Moseley really hit home on a heartfelt and unique coming of age story, and kept me at the edge of my seat throughout the story. I couldn’t put it down. I felt myself become nervous for Jason, and eager for him to uncover the plot. Even though the story breached some more serious topics plaguing professional and high school sports today, it made me feel content and relieved when the last page was read. The story proved that doing the right thing, even though it may not necessarily be what everyone wants, can be exactly what you need. I would recommend this story to readers of any age, because you are never too old to learn to have the courage to do what is right. Had me from the very first page!
