When his latest bust-up almost loses him his girlfriend he decides to check out the local boxing club, an experience which changes the course of his life in a way he could not have foreseen.

Part of a new series of books aimed at teenagers who have struggled with reading, this gripping story is age appropriate, exciting and relevant but of a manageable length and reading level. Text is complemented by pen and ink illustrations.
