"It's a riveting story...Wallace weighs his words carefully, making every one count in this excellent, understated first novel"--Booklist, starred review.
"There are only a few contemporary writers who can hit the mark with teenage boys, and Rich Wallace, with his first novel, seems likely to join that group...You don't need to know or like wrestling to become quickly engaged with this story."--Chicago Tribune
"The sports angle makes this a great "guy's" book, while the gripping narrative and feisty heroine will appeal to young women, too. A real winner"--Publishers Weekly, starred review.
