Wrestling Sturbridge
by Rich Wallace




Overview -
Welcome to Sturbridge, Pennsylvania, a small, dead-end town with nothing to do and no way out.  At least that's how Ben, a high school senior and the second-best 135-pound wrestler in school, sees it.  But Ben's fed up with being stuck on the bench, watching as his friend Al, the state champion, gets all the glory.  If Ben doesn't get his life in gear, he could end up like his father and the other men in Sturbridge--working on the line in the cinder block factory.  Spurred on partly by a wise, intense young woman, and partly by a strength found deep within himself, Ben looks for a way out--his whole life depends on it.  In the words of Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli, "Wrestling Sturbridge isn't just an outstanding first novel; it's an outstanding novel, period."
