This was awesome!

Review by MississippiReader

It had a lot of detail, and it not only moved me, but it had some comedy. I love comedy. 👍

Review by unicorn22

Takedown is a great book. I don’t love wrestling, but that is not all that this book is about. It is about friendship and doing what you love, even if you are the only girl on the team, like Mickey, or if you just want to wrestle even if it is against a girl, like Lev. Have a good time reading!

Great book!

Review by cicibug100

Cici S age 11. I have read this book multiple times and it never gets old. It is filled with friendship and actions that will make you never want to put the book down. The story of Lev and Mickey / Mikayla's adventures are amazing, I definitely recommend this story!
