I found this book on ms. nelson class. That was my reading ESL class. when I saw the cover of the book, I saw one guys with wearing a boxer gloves that make me to read. When I saw that I think that could be the best book. Also I though that I can get some lesson from that book so that is why I like this book and I think that this book will be also hard but when I read I am interested on this book. I am interested to know something and I start to read.
"The Contender" by Robert Lyipsyte is a story about a young man named Alfred. Who was taken in by his aunt when he was young because of his drug-addicted parents? When I look at the book title it sounds me like struggling before being a winner. As I go through inner part of the book it gets more interesting. I never thought Alfred was high school droop out and always hangs out with his best friend James and James' friends Major and Hollis.
Of course, Alfred was my best character. The reason Alfred was my favorite character was, when Alfred was on boxer game in gym, he loses, but he did not let himself down and he did not make himself a loser. He was trying again and again. Also, when Alfred was dropout from high school, at that time he might make his life worse like other high school dropout student, but he change his life in different way. He joins the Donatelli’s gym. Donatelli’s was owner of a boxing gym and he was a retire boxer coach. Alfred struggle for his future life even though he was a high school dropout.
The conflict on the story was, James and his friend offer Alfred to hang along with them while they robbed the Epstein's grocery store where Alfred works. Minutes later Alfred realizes that the Epstein's put a new silent alarm system in the store and he races to try to stop them. Those friends become safe by being arrested. Also, when Alfred was in uncle house, he used to get drunk, but when he saw love between husband and wife he start to ignore the alcoholic things. Some of the kids on street are after Alfred; to overcome the problems Alfred join the gym.
I want to recommend that book “contender” is really an interesting book to read; and, it is good to study for those people who are trying to do a boxer. This book is good for those people who are young and want to be contender because in this book Alfred was only six tin year old when he get dropout of high school. I think that fighting for right is good. It can make society better. If one person refused to do bad thing like Alfred then the trouble will decreases on society. When you read this book you will see fair, love, life, friend and also teacher who used to be kind. The main thing you can get chance to read was one guy who was hopeless and who don't have any ideas about his life he improve. At the end, as usual like the hero never lose. In this story Alfred became contender.
