From acclaimed author Terry Davis comes the cult classic, Vision Quest, which was called “the truest novel about growing up since The Catcher in the Rye” by New York Times bestselling author John Irving.
Louden Swain is a high school wrestler who is working hard to cut his weight down. All he wants is to win his weight division in the state championships. But he’s distracted from his goals by the older girl with car trouble that is staying with his family for a while. He is quickly falling in love with her, but can Louden make a relationship work and reach his wrestling goals at the same time?
Filled with integrity, honesty, and a sweetness that has made this coming-of-age story a cult classic, Vision Quest is a story that will be shared for generations to come.
