Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tennyson: Don?t get me started on the Bruiser. He was voted ?Most Likely to Get the Death Penalty? by the entire school.

It means a book that is guaranteed to grip you from beginning to end and leave you thinking about the characters for years, just like bruiser will. Buckle up and prepare for a great ride Laurie Halse Anderson, National Book Award Finalist for SPEAK and CHAINS
