When this book first came up, I was skeptical if I would enjoy it or not. I have never been a boxing fan. However, this book drew me in.
The author has a gift with words. It was written in a way that made me feel like it was a real-life story.
The story is about a boy who goes through rough times which have changed him over time to a fighter. The mother begins to drink from her shame of her son and his life. Soon, Sam ends up at the boxing club. This is not just a place to let out his feelings but to find God's use for him as well.
I loved this story. It is one that I will turn to again and again. There aren't many books that I say that about but this is one that I felt so many emotions through and fell in love with the writing.
I believe that anyone will find something in this book that will draw them in and not let them go.
I was given this book by bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
