Ivan Korske and Bobby Zane couldn't be different they come from different backgrounds different lifestyles and they have very different values and ways of looking at the world and dealing with people Yet they bot Personal ResponseI thought that pinned was a good bookbecause during the story it told about how much the effort it takes to be a wrestler There was very exciting points in this book like when Bobby almost got his girlfriend pregnant then what happened to Ivan s mom there is a lot of the different things you will want to read and I would have liked if this book went a little bit farther into the round where it was Bobby and Ivan wrestling for the state title and not having it stop at the start of the match Other wise I thought it was a great bookPlot SummaryWhat happened in this book is that Ivan is the best wrestlers in the state of New Jerseybut there s another wrestler who is good but has the determination to get to the state title which he does Ivan is from Lennings and then bobby Zane is from Milburn Bobby has both his parents and then in the contrast Ivan only has his dad when his mother died All Ivan s life has been wrestling he carved his mother s name into a wall thinking it will stay their forever which it will Bobby is a rich kid who is good at wrestling he had a girlfriend and he thought he got her pregnant in all reality he didn t but their was a problem He broke up with her half way through the thingsRecommendation I would recommend this book to anyone who really wants to know how much it takes to be in wrestling

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 Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in a wrestlers head and know what they are thinking In the book Pinned by Alfred C Martino you will get to see inside two wrestlers minds as they go through their journey through their senior year season I would recommend this book to anyone that is a competitive athlete I enjoyed this book because I love wrestling I am also very competitive and I would like to know what other wrestlers are thinking or what they are thinking about before a match I could relate to this book because the boys in the book are in high school and going through some of the same things I go through In the first chapter we learn about Ivan Korske who is a wrestler in his senior year at Lennings High School who is extremely dedicated to the sport he loves He is so dedicated that on the first page of the book it says Every night regardless of how tired or hungry he was Ivan ran When his running shoes were soaked from rain he ran When his fingers were numb from the cold he ran The night his mother died last April he ran Martino 1 Besides running he is doing push ups and sit ups every night he is always checking his weight making sure he is underweight Throughout the book he is always trying to get better to be ready to be the state champion at 129 poundsIn the second chapter we learn about Bobby Zane who is also a wrestler in his senior year at Millburn High School He did have a winning season the previous year but he is not as dedicated and prepared for this season like he should He is taking it for granted and thinks he will have a successful season He is not as focused because of his parents fighting all the time and he is worried about how it affects his little brother Christopher He also spends a lot of time talking to this girl he likes After the first tournament when he gets beat he realizes that he needs to work harder if he wants to be the state champion at 129 poundsThe story continues back and forth through both of the boys minds on things they are dealing with in school wrestling their families their friends and how they are mentally preparing for tournaments They also talk about the struggle they have with their parents about deciding on where to go to college and filling out applications They struggle with feeling hungry and feeling dehydrated as they try to stay under weight The boys also tell about their problems with teammates and coaches It also doesn t help that the state tournament is coming up and they both know they will probably be wrestling each other in the finals I really enjoyed this book because I go through some of the same things these two wrestlers did It reminded me of how last year is the past and it doesn t matter and that this year is a new year and I have to work hard to reach my goals and take nothing for granted As a high school student athlete you would find it hard not to have some connection with the main characters Pinned by Alfred C Martino is a novel that high school athletes can relate to There were several times while I read the story where I felt like I was really in Ivan and Bobby s minds and not just reading a book
