Boxing is the family sport—but it’s killing the family in this riveting read from the author of Inexcusable, a National Book Award finalist.
It’s been five years since his father died, and fourteen-year-old George is the man of the family. He knows all too well how brutal the life of a fighter can be. Didn’t it kill his father?
But Monty, George’s younger brother, has a completely different attitude. Boxing comes naturally to him. It’s in his blood. He thinks of it as his father’s legacy.
Unless George figures out a way to stop it, will boxing kill Monty, too?
