Armed with this knowledge, he resolves to take on the injustices of his country, and sets his heart on becoming the welterweight champion of the world. Peekay starts to take boxing lessons, makes new friends, collects cacti, and plays the piano. Above all, he learns to think with his head and then with his heart. Peekay discovers that nothing can defeat the determination to be true to yourself: This is the power of one.

    " Wow... This book is completely amazing. It has to be my favorite book, and I just want to read it again and again! Some parts made me laugh and the others touched me. I loved all the lessons and concepts this book presented, and the journey of Peekay throughout the story captivated me and was amazing- a cool thought. the characters were also amazing, and I didn't see the ending coming, but I liked the middle of the book better. Still my new favorite book. I even liked the boxing part- I woudn't think that I would like this book, but the combination of everything was superb. Everyone has to read it. Now. "
