One day we will fight again, but for now we are wolves in a cage, waiting to be let out....

The Wolfe family has fallen on hard times. Mr. Wolfe has had an accident at work and has been unemployed for months. Mum cleans longer and harder, and works a night shift at the hospital.

Sarah gets drunk now and then. Older brother Steve wants to leave home, to forget about his lunatic family. When Cameron and Ruben find they can earn fifty dollars a win with an organized boxing racket, they take the chance. Ruben has talent for boxing and Cameron has heart at least. They need the money, but it's really about self-respect. Boxing will change forever the way they see themselves.

Author Markus Zusak pens a surprisingly complex and touching story that will linger long with readers. The language is hard-hitting, witty, and authentic - as are the emotions and action. Fighting Ruben Wolfe is not about boxing. It's about respect, stubborn pride, and real brotherly love. Fans of The Book Thief won't want to miss listening to the novels that launched Markus Zusak's stellar career.

    " While these books were not as fantastic as The Book Thief or I am the Messenger, they were still pretty fabulous. I believe Markus Zusak a writter with the heart of a poet. I love the expressiveness of his characters. It might be said to be a little over the top, but if you've ever been a teenager there is nothing more over the top. "

    " Rating for Underdogs only, Fighting Reuben Wolfe and Getting the Girl rated under their titles. "

    " I read Getting the Girl years ago, and had no idea there were two prequels. Color me excited as hell at getting to read more about Cameron and Ruben. That said, Getting the Girl is still my favorite of the three because, well, he ... gets the girl. ;-) "
