Tyler McAllister a small 86 pound 8th grader that wants to play a sport to be known in his school. At school in math class over the speaker Tyler herd the wrestling coach, ask for anyone who wants to wrestle. The wrestling team was small so coach was even taking 8th graders in fort weigh classes he needed to fill. Tyler and his best friend Lymie go out for wrestling after a lot of arguing. They were so excited for the first wrestling practice they have ever been to. When they met the wrestling coach they didn¿t like wrestling anymore. Coach was mean and was going to make Tyler gain 20 pounds or more for the weight class 104 or he would get torn apart. They had to work so hard in practice and Lymie was ready to die in a hard practice. In parts of the book they switch with wrestling, Tyler¿s love life, and people dieing. Do you think Tyler can survive his with all the pressure on him? This book was a very good book but the author really drags things on at times in the story. I didn¿t like how the author always talked about how hard there practice was and how much they suffered in there practice. There are also many good things about this book but I am going to only list a few of them. The author did a great job when explaining the romantic parts of the story. The author really makes you want to cry every time someone dies in the story. Well I hope you go to your nearby library and look this book up and enjoy it just like I did.Was this review helpful?

So a kid gets a crush on his teacher. Big whoop. This did not convicne me that the writer knew much about wrestling. Very much for kids. Does not raise any serious issues about the sport.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
