I was nine years old the first time I hit my father and made him bleed. He was proud.
It's now five years after his father's death, and fourteen-year-old George is the man of the family. He knows all too well how brutal the life of a fighter can be. Didn't it kill his father?
But Monty, George's younger brother, has a completely different attitude. Boxing comes naturally to him. It's in his blood. He thinks of it as his father's legacy.
Unless George figures out a way to stop it, will boxing kill Monty, too?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is about a dad teaching his kid how to box. The kid wants to become a boxer, but his older brother thinks it is dangerous, and tries to stop him. This is a book for guys who like boxing. There are some sad parts in this book. B.B.
The story Shadow Boxer is thought-provoking and very well writen. The realationship between George and Monty is compliated, because of George's feeling of needing to be his brother's 'caretaker'. It's a great read.
