Ultimate Takedown: A YA Contemporary Sports Novel (Paperback)
Fiery competition and unexpected romance will melt your heart in book three of Tamara Girardi's swoon-worthy, young-adult contemporary series.
Iron Valley High School senior Annalise Fiori is the only girl on her school's wrestling team. With daily early morning lifting sessions and extra workouts in the evenings, she's earned her place on the high school team and respect from her male teammates. Her goals for the season are to earn a wrestling scholarship to a college with an amazing art program and interact with her middle school wrestling rival, Sebastian Love, as little as possible.
When Sebastian's school doesn't have enough wrestlers to field a team, her coaches welcome the Forest Run High School wrestlers to co-op with Iron Valley's team. Now, Annalise will have to face Sebastian every day at practice and maybe even compete against him to hold on to her weight class and prove herself to college coaches. Will the secret Annalise has been holding on to put everything she's worked so hard for at risk?
"A story destined to become a young adult classic." -Chelsea Bobulski, Author of the All I Want For Christmas series
