Series: Lorimer Real Love

Rating: 0 vote(s).

After a fight at school leaves him expelled, Jorge Gomez starts training to become a pro wrestler and finds that he has the talent to make it a promising career. At his first wrestling show, he meets Thom, who is from a politically active upper middle-class family — and opposites attract. Before he knows it, Jorge has his first boyfriend. But he soon finds himself up against the ropes when he adopts a flamboyantly gay "bad guy" wrestling persona, and Thom accuses him of promoting homophobia. Jorge has to find a way to be true to himself as a successful gay athlete to save his career and his relationship.

"This volume in the Real Love series successfully uses a high/low format that will appeal to reluctant readers as well as wrestling fans."

- Michael Cart Booklist

"... the plot moves along quickly. I think this novel is best suited to high school students who may struggle with anger management, or who may want to learn more about exploring their sexuality and relationships. Rated G: Good, even great at times, generally useful!"

- Sarah Atkinson Resource Links

"I would hope that high school libraries and public libraries would include this novel in their collections for those hoping for a quick and engaging read. Recommended."

- Rob Bittner CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"This is a well told story of an up and coming wrestler as he faces many tough decisions along the way ... The writing style is fast paced, with a lot happening quickly ... Overall, True To You is a story about choices. It isn't always easy to make the right choice, and sometimes you need to admit defeat and decide how to move forward. Tony Correia does a good job of telling such a tale."

- Amy Dufera NetGalley

"The romance stories in Lorimer's Real Love series reflect the diverse world that teens live in — at a reading level for emerging readers."
