Martino Nough Sacrificed enough Does each want to win enough All the training pain running and cutting weight ultimately comes down to a few short minutes on a wrestling mat leaving one boy the victor the other devastate. PinnedBy Alfred c MartinoThe name of the book is Pinned by Alfred C Martino The lexile for this book is 670L That lexile is for 6th to 8th graders The book takes place in present day New Jersey It is about two really good wrestlers who live very different lives but have the same goal to win wrestling state Ivan Korske was predicted to win state and has many scholarship offers His mom died the year before his senior year He lives in a small town with a bad wrestling team and a bad coach He also is poor because his mother died The second wrestler is Bobby Zane the underdog who comes out of nowhere He is the team captain of a very good school which is ranked His family is also very rich with a mansion and nice cars Bobby also has some problems his parent are unhappy and want to divorce Only one of them could win the state titleIn the book both Bobby and Ivan want to win the state title so the theme of the book is to win state at all cost The big uestion is who will win Throughout the book both wrestlers have really good reasons they want to win Examples of this are If yall win the state championship I m sure I can convince the committee to accept you page 183 That is Ivan s reason for wanting to win because if he doesn t he won t get to go to his dream college Bobby wants to win the state championship to prove to himself and his family that he is a great wrestler He also does it to be remembered at his high school as one of the best When Bobby s parents split apart it drives him even to win Another reason why Ivan will do anything to win is because a year before his senior year his mom died and he wants to win for herThis book is not for everybody I would only recommend it to people that are really into wrestling If you don t know a lot about wrestling this book will be confusing I liked how in this book every chapter switch between the two main characters The only problem with this though is that for the first uarter of the book is very confusing It was also very hard to read because it would get very dull and boring throughout the book It was also very predictable throughout most of the book but there was a couple parts that came out of nowhere The ending of this book is left on a giant cliff hanger that will make you wish you didn t even read the book One of the my favorite parts in this book is when Ivan and Bobby almost wrestle in the begin of the year but Bobby loses his match and does not meet Ivan in the championship match Another one of my favorite parts is when Ivan gets a call from the coach of the college he wants to got to and he tell him he needs to win state to go to their college So as a summary I would only recommend this book to people who are really into wrestling If you don t know a lot about wrestling this book will be very confusing

I AM SO FREAKING MAD RIGHT NOWOkay enough all caps But seriously I am mad I was gifted this audiobook by SYNC during the summer It isn t a story subject I would normally find interesting nor would I choose to spend my time readinglistening to but it was free and I did find it interesting The character conflicts are what kept me in this book So I should be happy right I mean I got to see the characters grow overcome their difficulties and make it to the thing they d both focused on for so longButTHERE IS NO CONCLUSION NO RESOLUTION NO WINNERI know I said no all caps but I CAN T BELIEVE I DON T KNOW WHO WON I was rooting for one boy over the other I guess that s why the author decided not to give us the final outcomehe didn t want to leave us upset if our favorite didn t win But now I m upset because I don t know if he wonand I never willFor my sanity s sake I will just assume I know the winner and the outcome of his future Oh and for those of you who wouldn t dream of picking up this book because it s about wrestlers you should give it a chance The terms for different holds or whatever they call it are mentioned and I m sure a wrestle could visualize the exact moves but it doesn t interfere with the story being told I will tell you if you have no idea what a wrestler goes through for his sport and I didn t it will make you want your sonbrotherboyfriendbest friend to NEVER become a wrestler A sport reuiring such an unhealthy lifestyle should not for the sake of the boys playing it be encouraged in my opinion No offense intended to any of you wrestlers out there Kudos to you for being able to play such a competitive and hard sport

So I added this book to my to read list in 2011 And I have absolutely no idea why An intense book about wrestling But I m all in now taking it to the mat see what I did there Anyway I have just started and so far not bad Martino is a very descriptive writer he does love his adjectives But you know what So do I so I can t even hate on him for all that Stay tuned as I delve into the sweaty smelly world of high school wrestlingTensionMartino excels at building the tension in this story It s so thick and raw it s almost painful Yet you have to know what s going to happen so you keep reading There is here than matches and wrestling though Both Bobby and Ivan are struggling with some heavy issues Rather than weigh the book down these struggles and issues give depth and help propel the narrative forward As much as you care about what the outcome of the ultimate showdown between Bobby and Ivan will be you also find yourself caring for them as people and not wanting there to only be one winner There seems to be than meets the eye with Ivan s coach McClellan It feels like there is a backstory there and I wonder if it will be revealed or if it s just Ivan s hatred of him as a person unrelated to any eventThat feeling when you think you missed something The whole IvanShelleyposter debacle Ivan was so enraged because he couldn t find his name Shelley said it was on there Why did he never tell her that he didn t see it and that s why he felt left out Was he just being manly and hiding how deeply he had been hurt I mean he is apologizing so why not go the extra step and come clean I just don t know which circles back to feeling like I missed something Even after going back and re readingJust no No way I am so mad And let down What a cowardly way to end the book After all that tension all that build up could Martino not even handle it I don t think it was genius or perfect it s reprehensible If you are going to get people vested in your story and characters have the guts to finish it to bring it to a conclusion It doesn t even work as a metaphor to have an unresolved ending it just cheapens the whole thing Such a disappointment
