Having just finished the first day of book talking to 8 classes of 7th and 8th graders, Bruiser seems to be a book that is catching the eye of many. I'm glad, because it really is a beautiful story. One of the things I loved about the book was how you get such a rich picture of who Brewster is from the various points-of-view in the book. Tennyson, Bronte and Cody each see him is a slightly different way.
Brewster's reality is tough to take but he maintains his humanity throughout.
This book will tear at your heartstrings, for sure!
