Eleven-year-old TJ McCall is a wrestling superstar in his northeast Philadelphia neighborhood. Following in the footsteps of his older brother, TJ dreams of making it big in the world of wrestling and achieving a college scholarship. While wrestling in the 82-pound class during his sixth grade year, TJ gets off to a red-hot start, but soon runs into a brick wall when he meets up with the neighborhood bully, Rourke Everson, who is out to stop him. TJ's streak of good luck quickly comes to a grinding halt when Rourke torments him to no end, both physically and emotionally, causing TJ to lose every time he steps on the wrestling mat. A bitter struggle unfolds for TJ as he battles with his own emotions to remain a true winner, both in his own eyes and in everyone else's. TJ's Takedown is an action-packed novel that will be sure to keep any young athlete, and especially those boys who love wrestling, on the edge of their seat for hours on end.
