When he was nine and his brother Monty was seven, George's father died from a brain hemorrhage due to years of boxing. Before he died, he spent a lot of time with George, teaching him life lessons, lessons about fighting and about learning the right way not to have to fight. George took these lessons seriously, and after his father died he vowed to watch out for Monty and to make sure these same lessons were passed along.

Everything was easy when Monty was little and looked up to George. But now that he is eleven, he is beginning to think for himself and to question his big brother's words. The most problematic issue is that Monty seems to be far too interested in boxing for George's or their mother's taste. He doesn't remember how his father's mind went in the end and what boxing did to him; he only thinks of his father as some sort of hero. George is terrified that his little brother will turn out like their father did. But how can he make Monty see the truth about boxing without making their father look bad?

I liked that this novel was told in short stories, most of them not about boxing, but all of which gave a well-rounded picture of what the relationship was between George and Monty. I also liked that this was a novel about discovery and growing up, instead of just being about boxing as I had expected.

I thought that George was a bit mean and overbearing, though. I can understand that he was trying to protect his brother, but if I were Monty, I would not have stood for his telling me what to do for as long as Monty did.

This book is a good book. It is about a low income family in a low income apartment buildings with a manager that is not to good. It is based on realistic scenes and some fictional scenes. The plot is good because it is realistic. There are two kids whose father died while boxing. Monty, the younges, wants to follow in his fathers footsteps and it almost tears the family apart. It is a fast-reading book and I reccomend it to kids about 10 years old and over, because of the rare but harsh cursing. I give this book 10 thumbs up. Next time you are in Amazon.com, or in a library or book store you should check this book out.

Shadow Boxer by Chris Lynch was a great book for the younger teenage audience. This heartfelt story is about an older brother trying to guide and show his younger brother the way because their father is not around to do it. Their father died several years before from boxing and Monty, the youngest of the two brothers had caught the boxing bug. George, his mother, and the boys uncle Archy do everything they can to get Monty out of the ring. In the end they expose him to the truth to bring him back to reality.
The story takes place in inner city New York and deals with many of the hardships that inner city youth face. The boys are introduced to a �big brother� because there mom fears it may be the only way to save Monty and that it may do the boys some good. George takes this offensively because it makes him feel as though he has screwed up on raising his younger brother who assumes responsibility for.
I would recommend reading this book because it is an easy read for the high school level and it is a really great book. From the beginning you connect with the characters and really get an understanding for why they are the way they are. As an older brother I really enjoyed seeing how George felt the responsibility for his younger brother and always wanted to protect him.

Shadow boxer was a pretty good book. It was about a kid that lost his father because of boxing. So he wanted to become a boxer and be better and win for his father. The setting was in the inner city of New York. So he had alot of outher kids that he could fight for fun. I think that the book was pretty good. I would tell other kids to read the book if tey like to read or talk about boxing.
