    This is a story about wrestling in middle school It seems to be one of a series, but it works as a standalone story and I think I would probably grow bored extremely quickly if the others in the series are on the same theme Basically this is a story of a boy who joins a wrestling team, finds that its harder than he thinks, perseveres and eventually triumphs There are no surprises in the story its almost formulaic Still there could be readers especially wrestling enthusiasts who could This is a story about wrestling in middle school It seems to be one of a series, but it works as a standalone story and I think I would probably grow bored extremely quickly if the others in the series are on the same theme Basically this is a story of a boy who joins a wrestling team, finds that its harder than he thinks, perseveres and eventually triumphs There are no surprises in the story its almost formulaic Still there could be readers especially wrestling enthusiasts who could enjoy this book I can t say I was one of these people

    The book was great It is an amazing sports fiction novel It follows the story of a young middle school wrestler who may not be the biggest kid, but he has a huge effort span I can connect with this book because I was on the Weber wrestling team this past winter I wasn t that good, but I still tried and gave it my best shot And I definitely wasn t the biggest kid on the team Overall, if you are a sports fan, you should definitely read this book It is a well done piece of writing.
