9780064470391 The breakthrough modern sports novel The Contender shows readers the true meaning of being a hero. This acclaimed novel by celebrated sportswriter Robert Lipsyte, the recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award for lifetime achievement in YA fiction, is the story of a young boxer in Harlem who overcomes hardships and finds hope in the ring on his path to becoming a contender. Alfred Brooks is scared. Heâ€™s a high-school dropout and his grocery store job is leading nowhere. His best friend is sinking further and further into drug addiction. Some street kids are after him for something he didnâ€™t even do. So Alfred begins going to Donatelliâ€™s Gym, a boxing club in Harlem that has trained champions. There he learns itâ€™s the effort, not the win, that makes the boxerâ€”that before you can be a champion, you have to be a contender.
