"Regrets, I've had a few. But then again, too few to mention.: This might well be Joves song.

A young high-school wrestler living in Pennsylvanie has a girlfrend, a neighbor boy that he's always been sweet on and a senior year ahead of him.

He makes some mistakes along the way, has some misadventures, but unlike real life you just know that somehow everyone is gonna end up OK. (at least in his close circle of friends)

Really a sweet story and a nice change from some of the more tragedy laden fare out there. This is a young adult read that's both realistic and life affirming.

This one has gotten some rather low ratings from other reviewers but personally I liked it a LOT.
