More Like Wrestling unfolds through the compelling voices of two sisters, Pinch and Paige, coming of age in Oakland, California, at a time when the beautiful, crumbling city is being transformed by the dark temptations of its underworld. As they grow from girls to women the sisters are confronted with a series of surprising reversals--death, disaster, and, maybe, love--that forces them to come to grips with the truth about their choices and their tangled roots.
"Lyrical and engaging . . . Smith's light, sinewy prose sings with precision." --"Washington Post Bookworld "
"A wildly intelligent coming-of-age story and] a morally complex take on the devastating costs of poverty and racism--a tale that deals in hard truths and, ultimately, forgiveness."--"Elle"
"Smith's supple language and the generosity she shows toward her own imagination and memory allows something new and real to emerge--a grittier, muckier story, full of the uncertainty of life." --"Africana "
