Written by Jeff Gottesfeld

Like Shawn Reynolds, the main character of this book, I was not at all interested in World Wrestling. I expected to be bored and had low expectations when I began reading, but this turned out to be a fabulous story that I could not put down. Shawn’s father, who is a huge fan of WWE, is deployed to Afghanistan. Shawn decides to enter the contest for Superfan of the WWE to make his father happy. He becomes a finalist with Rey Mysterio as his mentor. Rey pushes Shawn through training and studies he will need to win. There is a wonderful surprise for Shawn at the end of the book. I believe all students will love reading this story and the wrestling fans will be ecstatic.
