Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679885552, Mass Market Paperback)Ben will be damned if he's going to stay in Sturbridge, Pennsylvania, when he gets out of high school. Work in the cinder block factory like everyone else? No way. He's also not going to let his friend Al win the state wrestling championship. Ben wants it more than Al does. Ben needs it more than Al does. Ben is going to win. Robert Cormier writes: "in a beautifully understated first novel, Rich Wallace brings the town and the teenager achingly alive as Ben wrestles not only his high school opponents, but with the big issues of life and love and the choices a teenager must make."

Stuck in a small town where no one ever leaves and relegated by his wrestling coach to sit on the bench while his best frien becomes state champion, Ben decides he can't let his last high school wrestling season slip by without challenging his friend and the future.
