Fighting Ruben Wolfe

Fighting Ruben Wolfe

Fighting Ruben Wolf takes place in a fighting place during the present. The main conflict in the story is that Rube is fighting to make money and gets paid $50 to help out his family. The book begins at a dog track.
The main character is Rube. Three words to describe the main character are nice, helpful, and cool. The character is motivated by his family like since his dad doesn't work, they need money and he needs to help out his family. I like the main character because he is helping out his family by fighting to make money. The relationship between Rube and his family is that he really cares about them and he is going to fight for them so he can make money. The theme of the novel is helping out family. One example that supports the theme is that Rub's friend are telling him to drop out of school to get a job. Another example is that Rube is fighting people he don't know to make money for his family. A third example from the book is that his dad doesn't work since he got injured so hey has to help them out. A final example that supports theme is that he met a guy that is offering to fight to make $50 each time he wins.
I rate this novel a 5 because the setting of the book is confusing and i like it because it involves fighting. I can connect with the book because other kids can do kinda like the same thing he did to help out their family.
