The Wrestler: The Pursuit of a Dream by Bill Vincent

9781684110674-Copy

The Wrestler: The Pursuit of a Dream, written by Bill Vincent, is a book for preteen boys. It is a story of Nicky, who grew up very poor and was bullied as a teenager. Despite being poor he and his brothers would wrestle and often watched wrestling. As Nicky grew up he became a wrestler and eventually wrestled in Japan making $50 a night. Now he is back home and is broke.

When the contender for the Wrestling Championship Match became injured, a new contender needs to be found. The World Champion selects Nicky to fight. The Champion has a plan to let Nicky fight for a little while and take him down. But Nicky takes this fight seriously. He trains and works out and is ready to fight for the Championship.

This is a good clean book for per-teen boys. The story show us how Nicky is able to get back into shape and fulfill his wrestling obligation. The story does have the violence that surround the sport but also shows the reader the respect Nicky and the Champion show each other after the match is over. The story also shows us how Nicky wants to help his girlfriend with his winnings instead of using them for himself. The part in the book that I really enjoyed is when Nicky took his wrestling obligation seriously and trained to get in the best shape possible. The story does mention the Nicky is a Christian, but there is no follow up on that. The story also leaves a few questions unanswered, like this could be the beginning of a series.

The author has been a pastor for over 20 years and has written many books that have helped people overcome the spirits and curses of Satan.

I received a copy of this book from BookCrash and this is my honest review.
