Though I don't know anything at all about wrestling, I still really enjoyed this book. After just a few pages I felt very invested in the characters, and found myself cheering Ben on each time he took the mat. I felt like this was a wonderful story from a teenage boys point of view, which is definitely outside of my normal reading. Overall I really enjoyed the book. I'm only giving it 4 stars because I felt like the ending needed a bit more. My teenage daughter is reading this now and is also really enjoying it.

As a former wrestler I enjoyed the wrestling aspect of this book very much. The description put into the actual matches and what wrestler's go through off the mat was excellent. I liked the teenager dealing with aspects outside of wrestling angle also. Overall plot seemed interesting but the ending was less than stellar and I felt should have been developed better, it was to abrupt. My 13 yr-old is also reading it and loves it so far, he is also a wrestler. Kudos on on the effort put into this, your wrestler's POV makes it a good book to read no matter what.

Throwback would have been interesting if I were a wrestler because the author certainly goes into a lot of detail about the sport. I did like the honest portrayal of a teenage boy dealing with his insecurities, but the whole plot was unbelievable and the ending was flat and uninteresting, hence suitable for the book.
