N old competitor and the same dark demons that lurk in the corners of a mind stretched by the demands of the game Daniel was looking for acceptance but the secrets he uncovers about his father will force him to make some surprising moves himself in Grandmaster by David Kla Loved it Great YA book about an unusual subject It reminded me of Louis Sachar 'The Cardturner' but that was about Bridge and this is about Chess I don't know anything about either but love a book that draws me into a world that I know nothing about especially a sport Daniel is the kind of guy I root for not mainstream but not a bad boy either I loved the contrasts between three different types of fathers and the influence they have on the sons they are each raising The book makes Daniel's family very ordinary with a house that is a bit shabby and a dad that is bald with a potbelly and a rather boring sounding job I could just imagine it We see the nonathletic Daniel struggling away at a private school that his parents can't really afford trying to fit in somewhere He feels he didn't inherit the right genes for successAlong comes the opportunity to participate in a Chess competition and it turns out his Dad has a secret past as a Chess Grandmaster The author really explores what happens to a person under the stress of competition Winning can be addictive and it can mean you have to sacrifice too much of yourself to always be on top of your game Is it worth it You feel by the end that you know what is important in life I loved the family dynamics and the sweet romance that is budding by the end of the story It is a truly satisfying book
