Takedown by Laura Shovan is an amazing and inspiring book. I had a burning desire to meet the characters Mickey and Lev and be like them in my heart. An influential part of the story is where the main character Mickey went on to be the only girl on her wrestling team. She followed her heart pushing aside other people’s negative thoughts. Sports often do help kids find friendship. Takedown shows how two kids struggled to get along on a team while working together on a long journey ahead. The theme of the story is friendship found in sports. The bond between the two kids grows throughout the story. Friendship is priceless is the feeling I got after reading Takedown.
