    this will probably be one of the first books I give my son to read when he starts high school A really steady book that avoids a lot of the tright pitfalls that books of this ilk often blunder into.

    Terry Davis is the reason Chris Crutcher is a published author This novel is sooo much better than the film The ending is very courageous for a new author My guys really have to ponder itand pondering is a good thing

    I recently found out through this site that one of my favorite high school movies came from this book The book is really different, but mostly because of time and place I loved the pacing and the insight this book has It really reveals the best part of the male libido.
