Martino Nough Sacrificed enough Does each want to win enough All the training pain running and cutting weight ultimately comes down to a few short minutes on a wrestling mat leaving one boy the victor the other devastate. Publisher Listen Live Audio IncThis book is one I would never even think of picking up So how did it end up in my ears Well it was offered up as a free young adult audiobook from SYNC YA as part of their free weekly audiobooks during their Summer Read program I have found that most YA novels are not just very well written but have stories that are intriguing Except for that glittering vampire seriesThe basic story is that of 2 high school wrestlers in different parts of New Jersey and their climb to the New Jersey High School State Wrestling Champion Both come from different backgrounds Ivan whose mother has recently passed away and Bobby whose parents are possibly divorcing What kept me listening to the story was that each individual s climb to the same goal was so different from the other While their story is told through the sport of high school wrestling which by the way has no ropes rings or folding chairs which is why on the first day of tryouts in high school i left it could have been any sport or common interest their story was in their dedication and progress The ending will confuse you for a moment but after some contemplation you will reach that Ah ha moment I loved the endingMark Shanahan delivered the audio perfectly and kept the story interesting with his vocal acting On Tidy Endings leaving one boy the victor the other devastate.
