Among the growing popularity of mixed martial arts (or MMA), Caged Warrior is a must-read. This young-adult novel written by Alan Lawrence Sitomer provides an action-packed adventure within the world of underground cage fighting. The protagonist is a teenager named McCutcheon Daniels, aka “Bam Bam,” who fights in an illegal underage MMA circuit in a poor section of Detroit. The story is told from his first-person perspective, allowing readers to get inside his mind as he brawls to support his younger sister Gemma. He is responsible for his sister since their father, a former fighter, spends the money McCutcheon earns from winning bouts on alcohol. Tied in with the Priests, a local Mafia-like gang that runs the circuit, McCutcheon’s father is always harshly commanding him to win, so that the Priests don’t come after them to harm them… or worse. As for the author, Alan Sitomer is also a speaker and educator. He has won several awards, including California’s 2007 Teacher of the Year award, and the 2008 Innovative Educator of the Year award. Some of his other books include Homeboyz, Hip-Hop High School, and The Secret Story of Sonia Rodriguez. School Library Journal has called Caged Warrior “Fast-paced, engrossing, and intense.” In addition, Kirkus Book Reviews says it’s “Explosive and engaging… This is swift storytelling.” Caged Warrior is a unique book and should satisfy MMA fans as well as those who enjoy fighting stories.

An incredible read for those who like action, brutality, and good sports. This book is a quick read that you will not want to put down. The book is about a sophomore in high school who is forced to cage fight for money as his family’s only source of income; lucky for him, he excels at fighting. It targets readers who enjoy sports and especially sports with brutality in them. The novel is about a boy who is literally fighting for his family to live and has a great side story to go with it. It appeals to those who want a love story, a hero’s journey, or simply an easy read. Alan Sitomer provides detailed explanations of characters and scenes in the book that will make you feel as if you are there and experiencing it yourself.
