Granite Grit by Lee Cooper is a superb story, that is both fast and engaging. The plot was powerful and utterly gripping; filled with highs and lows, laughter and tears. The story of a boxer named Joe who falls into the seedie world of underground bare knuckle fighting. Not being familiar with this topic, reading this book allowed me an amazing insight to the world of boxing. Along the way we are introduced to a lot of characters but not once did I get confused whilst reading as they all connect well with one another. So thank you Lee for this fabulous book which gave me many hours of reading pleasure.
