TAKEDOWN

By Laura Shovan

Book Source: Gifted by Laura to me

Book Status: Available

1. This is about a girl playing a sport considered a “boy sport”.

2. She has to deal with a lot of not nice behavior from adults and kids.

3. It is a book about perseverance.

4. It could be a book to start an interesting debate with middle graders. They could have strong opinions on if there are boy/girl roles.

5. This would be a good book for kids who are doing things not usual for kids. Things like track cycling.
