“Sports fans and reluctant readers alike will enjoy the detailed, fast-paced wrestling matches and blow-by-blow MMA fight scenes. … Visceral and violent yet ultimately hopeful.” — Kirkus Reviews

With an upcoming international tournament where top college recruiters will take note, sixteen-year-old Rowan trains to earn a scholarship and secure her planned future with her Shakespeare-thespian boyfriend, Ozzy. But when a costly treatment for her father’s worsening ALS symptoms emerges in Sweden, Rowan decides to train with an MMA fighter at her gym to fight and make money in an underground — and illegal — fight club. As Rowan delves into the world of cage-fighting, risking her relationship and her wrestling career, she soon learns that no amount of money — or fighting — can solve her problems.

Takedown is a high-intensity coming-of-age story about familial grief and competitive combat, with lots of heart, hope, and headlocks.
