Hey, I'm Jamie this is my quarter 4 book talk.
I read Straight Punch by Monique Polak.
This book is about a young girl named Tessa who goes to a new school called New Directions. Shes in a rough neighborhood, and is not like everyone else at her school.
About 50% of her school are boxers, But Tessa doesn't think it's all that great.
One day Tessa decides she'll give boxing a try.
Then she finds out a fellow neigherbor is starting a petitioin to get rid of New Directions.
What is she going to do?
Tessa discovers something worth fighting for, both in and out of the ring.
