    The Chief

    The Chief The Chief is a book about a boxer named sonny bear known as the tomahawk kid. Sonny has all the stuff of becoming the new champ except exposure. When sonny was through with his last fight a reporter came up to him and told him that he should go to Las Vegas and fight the champ. Sonny was going to give it one more shot before he called it quits. People made fun of him because nobody thought that he would ever make it as far as he did. Near the middle of the story sonny is being interviewed by a reporter after a horrible fight he just came out of and. Sonny said that winning the title would be easy now. Now I¿m not going to tell you the end of this book but I highly recommend that you read this book wants you start you will never want to put it down.

    The Chief

    The Chief by Robert Lipsyte is a very good book about a kid name Sonny Bear or the Tomahawk Kid who has a championship left hook, but the heavyweight trail is too full of small fights in small towns. Sonny is about ready to hang up boxing until he gets an idea from a reporter to go to Las Vegas and try to fight the champ. As the story continues Sonny deals with the emotions of being famous and staying true to his Indian background. Sonny's friends, Alfred Brooks and Martin Witherspoon and his auncle Jake help him through this story and are very important roles in this book. The Chief is very action packed but also is a drama and I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys boxing or sports, so thats why I give this book four stars because its fun and easy to read and will leave you at the end of your seat.

    The Chief

    The Chief is about a young boy named Sonny Bear or the Tomahawk kid who is a boxer who is half white, half Indian. Sonny is at the point in his career where he can become a big time boxer but he can't get any good fights and is cheated when he does fight.This all changes when he meets a reporter who gives him an idea to go to Las Vegas and try to fight the best. During this story Sonny struggles to find who he really is and where he comes from and who are really his friends. Sonny has his ups and downs in this non stop action packed drama that will leave wondering what happens next.
