I loved this book. It is the best PJ our way book that I have gotten so far! It's amazing! Mickey has always wanted to join the Eagles, a wresting team, but when she's old enough, she finds out that she's not allowed to join because she's a girl. So she joins another team -- the Gladiators, which leads her to making new friends, winning matches, and having a lot of fun. :D!!

great!

How do you make a sports story boring? Write the same thing over and over and over and over.

The Jewish stuff felt like it was just stuck in. Can't PJ find good stories where the Jewish part doesn't seem so fake?

Couldn't put the book down! I read at least three chapters almost every night before I went to sleep, read it during every extra minute I had, and took it with me almost every time went somewhere in the car!!! I learned what it really means to be supportive to friends and family as well. Definitely a must read for kids in middle school or older.

Best.Book.EVER!!!!!!

This book was the best book ever. I love it so much. I would really recommend reading it. It is also a good book for adults. It is one of my favorite books. It is not only about wrestling, it's also about how an 11 year old girl had a tough time, because not a lot of wrestling travel teams accepted females. Overall this book is the best of the best!!!

Best Book Ever!!!!!!

This book made me think more about friendship.

Mikayla is a wrestler. She is actually quite good at it. But until her brother's coach says she can't play on his team because she's a girl, Mikayla has to join a new team and start from scratch. Lev has been wrestling forever and he'd never wrestled with a girl, in travel league, as his training partner. Lev and Mikayla have to work hard throughout the book to prove who they are and how hard they'll work to achieve their goals. This book has taught me how important sports are to families and how one friendship can change your life. I loved this book and I would recommend it to a friend.

Author of Takedown

When Laura Shovan was 12 and reading Jane Eyre, she felt like she was in rainy England even though she was really in sunny New Jersey. From then on, she knew she wanted to become a writer. Laura’s son was a wrestler when he was a kid, and the sport became such a big part of the family’s lives that she knew she would write a book about it one day. That book is Takedown!
