From School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Crutcher was an awkward youngster, always chosen last for sports and the object of constant ridicule. While episodes of his life are often laugh-out-loud funny, Crutcher explores some of the more painful elements of his childhood. These include his mother's alcoholism, his uncontrollable temper, and strained family relationships. Audio version available from Listening Library.α(c) Copyright 2013.

Chris Crutcher lives in Spokane, Washington.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, it is not for the faint of heart. There are situations that make you cringe and quite a bit of profanity and sexual reference. If you cannot talk about masturbation or swear in your classroom (in a professional way), I do not recommend it.
It is great to have in any library!
This is a fantastic read!
