Description

The working class family of Cameron Wolfe and his brother Ruben isn't having much luck these days. Their dad has just lost his job and is too proud to go on welfare. Their older brother has moved out of the house in disgust. Which leaves them open to suggestion when a local boxing promoter signs them up for illegal bouts. But it's more than the meagre winnings that draws the two brothers in. Soon they find themselves fighting for something else. Is it pride? Love? Or just the experience of winning for once? A knockout debut from the front lines of a family's recession.

Review quote

"Zusak offers a lot of sports action as well as a sensitive introspection of sibling relationships and family pride ... an often provocative book." -- Publisher's Weekly "The earthly characterizations, volatile family dynamics, and sports theme make this a match for Chris Lynch's Shadow Boxer." -- Horn Book Review

About Markus Zusak

Australian author Markus Zusak grew up hearing stories about Nazi Germany, about the bombing of Munich and about Jews being marched through his mother's small, German town. He always knew it was a story he wanted to tell.

At the age of 30, Zusak has already asserted himself as one of today's most innovative and poetic novelists. With the publication of The Book Thief, he has been dubbed a 'literary phenomenon' by Australian and US critics. Zusak is the award-winning author of four previous books for young adults: The Underdog, Fighting Ruben Wolfe, Getting the Girl, and I Am the Messenger, recipient of a 2006 Printz Honor for excellence in young adult literature. He lives in Sydney. Stig Wemyss is an actor, writer and the voice behind millions of children's audiobooks. Well, not millions. Thousands ... alright, more like hundreds ... he has a huge fan club. Bolinda audio is constantly receiving letters from kids saying things like 'Stig rocks' and 'I love Stig' and 'Stig Wemyss is the best narrator in the world'. Of course we don't show Stig all these letters, as he already thinks he's the best narrator in the universe! Stig is also the author of the exciting in-car audio entertainment series, The Tripp Diaries, so now he thinks he's the best narrator and the best author in the universe. We think he is too, but let's just keep that to ourselves.
