Takedown #8: Winning Season by Rich Wallace

Strong, wiry, and lightweight, Donald seems to have the perfect combination of physical attributes for wrestling. And after seeing a high school wrestling match, he's excited to join Hudson City's middle-school team. The workouts are grueling, and he loses his first few matches, but Donald's most difficult obstacle is his temper. Can he channel it to work for him instead of against him? Packed with action and drama, this newest Winning Season book from accomplished author Rich Wallace won't disappoint.

"Takedown" is an interesting novella (short novel) about a young middle-school wrestler who has to come to grips with his short temper and how to become a better wrestler. Boys who are interested in wrestling will enjoy the characters who are relatable to real life situations and how one's behaviour can get one into trouble if not controlled. He must learn patience as well and he'll find that as he wrestles in more tournaments, the better he gets when he concentrates. He not only wrestles for sport but with his temper.

I wrestled when I was young and this novel brought back memories of what it was like. It's also a great research tool for me as I plan to write one of my own. This also teaches young wrestlers that it's okay to do your best at your chosen sport and how to control one's temper as the protagonist has a short one. It's a brisk and quick read and fulfilling at the end. All you young wrestlers out there should read this book.
