It wasn't long before the new kid from North Carolina made friends at his high school in New Jersey. Ben is the kind of guy that everybody likes and he's spending a lot of time with Judy Voorst. So what's the problem? Ben Petrovic has a secret. He's not who everybody thinks he is. He had some problems back home that he had to get away from and Jersey looked like the right place to find out where he stood in the world of wrestling. Somewhere along I-95 Ben Pietrak morphed into Ben Petrovic. Elation over his success on the mat is tempered by the strain of keeping his secret as well as a difficult relationship with Judy. On top of that, Judy's other suitor seems to know way too much about Ben and isn't afraid to use it to get what he wants. Ben's legal and romantic difficulties converge with his struggle for wrestling vindication at the state wrestling championships in Atlantic City. How can he end up with everything he wants: integrity, redemption and the girl?

I liked this book. I was a bit dissapointed in the ending...I felt that there were a number of things left unresolved. However, that happens a lot in life, so maybe the story was more true to life than most. Read full review
