After a fight at school leaves him expelled, Jorge Gomez starts training to become a pro wrestler and finds that he has the talent to make it a promising career. At his first wrestling show, he meets Thom, who is from a politically active upper middle-class family — and opposites attract. Before he knows it, Jorge has his first boyfriend. But he soon finds himself up against the ropes when he adopts a flamboyantly gay "bad guy" wrestling persona, and Thom accuses him of promoting homophobia. Jorge has to find a way to be true to himself as a successful gay athlete to save his career and his relationship.

"I would hope that high school libraries and public libraries would include this novel in their collections for those hoping for a quick and engaging read. Recommended."

- Rob Bittner, CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"... the plot moves along quickly. I think this novel is best suited to high school students who may struggle with anger management, or who may want to learn more about exploring their sexuality and relationships. Rated G: Good, even great at times, generally useful!"

- Sarah Atkinson, Resource Links
