Review: Kyle Bailey pursues his dream to become a WWE superstar by enrolling in a school for professional wrestlers. He shows promise and after graduation lands a beginner's role in an established routine. On the brink of fulfilling his dream, the teen has to give up his fledgling career to care for his grandmother, who raised him after his mother abandoned him. The book focuses mainly on Kyle's relationships with his mother, grandmother, and older girlfriend. The resolution is a little too pat and glib but most readers will find the book a satisfying read.
