Thirteen-year-old Maisie joins her school's formerly all-male wrestling team and tries to last through the season, despite opposition from other students, her best friend, and her own teammates.

Simon and Schuster
I'LL START WITH SIMETHING THAT MAY SURPRISE YOU. WHAT I REALLY WANTED IN JUNIOR HIGH WAS TO BE A CHEERLEADER. IF I HAD MADE IT, ALL THIS WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED....

Maisie Potter isn't quite sure why she signed up for the boys' wrestling team. She's never been all that interested in boys, so it can't have anything to do with Eric Delong, in spite of the disturbing effect his smile has on her. And she's certainly not prepared for the effect her presence on the team has on the people around her.

Her brother's totally disgusted with her, her best friend drops her, her classmates ridicule her, and opposing teams forfeit rather than wrestle her. But Maisie's not a quitter, and she discovers that she really likes wrestling -- and that while Eric might not be worth the flak she puts up with, feeling good about herself is.

Another excellent story by Author Jerry Spinelli. How spirited Maisie joins the boys wrestling team at school much to opposition of her best friend and classmates and even some of the parents. But her Mom is fully behind her and her little sister P.K. Her Dad also , but not as strong as her Mom . And her brother a definite NO ! Her best friend deserts her.
Story of her struggles and triumphs .
Fast paced read and very enjoyable .
