    This is one of those fictional books that reads like a true story. For a while there... I honestly had to keep checking just to see if the book was fiction or non-fiction. It is so realistic!

    I was immediately caught up in the story. A kid who was given a tough hand in life. After some major life crisis', he is changes - going from "good boy" to a fighter, one who is not doing well in school, and often bringing shame to his mother. To cope - she turns to alcohol, which of course only makes matters worse.

    Sam's life continues to spiral until as a teenager he meets Jerry - boxing trainer. Providence lands him at the boxing club - which becomes not only an outlet, but a tool God uses to minister to him as well as draw Him to the Lord. Jerry has problems of his own - a troubled past and some deeply buried anger. As the two begin to work together, God also is doing a work of His own in both of their lives.

    This is a powerfully moving story - that will not only open your eyes, but will open your tear ducts at times. You will cry, get angry, and even laugh. And you might even find yourself praying for the characters in the book - of course until you remind yourself this book is just fictional!

    There are many other people in this story worth mentioning - Sam's mother, Jerry's wife, and several guys from the boxing gym. Each plays a very special role in making the story turn out just right!

    So what are you waiting for? Grab your copy today!! You won't regret it and you will be sharing this book with others so it can impact their lives as well!

    I was blessed with this book by The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to review it positively.

    Inspirational Debut Novel
    March 17, 2015

    Definitely giving this debut novel by Luke Wordley five stars. From the very first sentence my attention was riveted to this story. Sam is a thirteen year old boy whose father died and he and his mom are forced to move into public housing. Sam sinks into bitterness and anger and his mom into alcoholism. Sam's one outlet is fighting. One day he runs into the wrong gang and is rescued by another young man who just happens to be a member of the local boxing club. Here Sam is introduced to the boxing coach, Jerry, who is a Christian. Jerry has been having his own struggles with his faith.

    This author has successfully written a novel that will keep your attention. I found myself wrapped up in every one of the characters and their part in the story. I found myself identifying with each one in some way or another. I can only imagine how I would feel as a kid who lost my dad and the life I knew. And the mom who has no idea how to handle a son who went from the good kid to the bully while dealing with her own grief. And Coach Jerry, trying to come to grips with his own struggles from the past and overcome his doubts and anger toward God. There's also Gloria, Jerry's wife, who has to maintain grace while her husband struggles and is sometimes not so nice to her and their children.

    This is a Christian novel, but doesn't come across "preachy " at all. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good story and certainly to anyone interested in boxing. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it as an adult (and a woman, at that!), but feel that it would appeal to teenage boys.

    I received a copy of this book from The Book Club Network and the publisher in exchange for my honest review which I have given.

    After a tragic accident that took Sam Penninton's father, he and his mother, Janet, have to move off the farm they were living on where his dad worked. They move into a run-down public housing complex. Sam soon takes to fighting in the streets and his mother is drinking more and more. Sam is in trouble at school and is transferred to different school yet not fitting in. One day Sam is caught in a terrible street fight when a member of a boxing club see it and rescues Sam, taking Sam to the boxing club with him. Sam decides he loves boxing and eventually find himself back to the club working with trainer Jerry. Jerry quickly gets Sam involved in boxing matches. One of Jerry's rules is that he prays over his boxers before their fight.

    Sam and Jerry both go through a hard time through out the story. Jerry has turned his back on his faith, but they both find their way to salvation during the last fight.

    This is a very touching story. It gives insight into the lives of those living in poverty and the people that cross their lives. The story line was easy to follow and had many unexpected events. I got caught up in this book and would recommend it to men and women alike. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!

    From despair to hope

    I thought I was reading the story of a young boy becoming a professional fighter, but it turned out this story was so much more than that it is a wonderful, touching story of a young boy and his trainer, both finding their way out of the dark into a better place because of their growing faith. It is a very real story full of pitfalls and despair, but also full of love and hope. The story grabbed me from the start, wanting to help this young boy who is in the wrong environment to find success. It was hard to keep reading, when I knew I couldnt help for real! But, I am glad I did because the story takes even the reader on a journey from heartbreak and despair to hope for the future, knowing God is there to see you through. I recommend this book for any reader, but especially for anyone you know who is struggling to find their place in the world and feel like they have hit the bottom. The main character, Sam, will encourage you to keep on the path you have chosen he has such courage and determination!

    Compelling!
    January 9, 2015
    Britney Adams
    Although I have never been a fan of boxing, The Fights synopsis piqued my interest. As I began reading, the story and its characters quickly took hold and didnt let go!

    The Fight is a compelling story! Sam Pennington is a dynamic character and my heart ached for all he endured in his young life. I also hurt for his mother, whose struggles overwhelmed her. I enjoyed the way their story unfolded and remained captivated from beginning to end. I would love to revisit these characters and read more of Sams story. The Fight is an inspiring novel and one I really enjoyed!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through The Book Club Network. All thoughts expressed in this review are my own and no monetary compensation was received.
