Fighting Ruben Wolfe - Markus Zusak What is it about boxers that makes you root for them ? Here we have two teenage brothers who are recruited to box in rundown venues for very little money. Ruben Wolfe is a natural and easily wins all his fights. Younger brother Cameron isn't really much of a fighter, in fact, his boxing name is The Underdog. The story is about their home life, why they agreed to become fighters, culminating in a match against each other. I expected a little more from Zusak and up until the last few pages I would have given this a solid 3. The ending was worth a 4 so I guess I really rate it at 3.5 stars.
