The Wrestling Season by Laurie Brooks uses the metaphor of a wrestling match to explore the issues of peer pressure, the search for identity and the destructive power of rumors. It is Matt's year to excel on his high school wrestling team, but innuendo about his friendship with Luke causes Matt to question himself and his priorities. While the language is sometimes candid, it focuses on the ideas and issues that teens face every day.
