Praise for Takedown:

“As the chapters alternate between the characters’ perspectives, readers will quickly become invested, particularly when the tweens’ goals eventually merge and they discover that a true wrestler is anyone with the courage to step on the mat.” —Booklist
 
“Mikayla and Lev are winners.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“The characters are in their first year of middle school, which will appeal to both upper elementary and younger middle school audiences. . . . A solid choice.” —School Library Journal
