Author: Neal Shusterman

Award-winning author Neal Shusterman delivers a suspenseful and chilling tale of friendship, family, and the sacrifices we make for the people we love.

Tennyson is not surprised, really, when his family begins to fall apart, or when his twin sister, Brontë, starts dating the misunderstood bully Brewster (or the Bruiser, as the entire high school calls him). Tennyson is determined to get to the bottom of the Bruiser’s reputation, even if it means gearing up for a fight. Brontë, on the other hand, thinks there’s something special underneath that tough exterior. And she’s right…but neither of them has any idea what it is.

This story will appeal to both male and female teens for its alternating perspectives, portrayal of friendship, and even a touch of the supernatural. Neal Shusterman is undoubtedly at his best with this moving and powerful novel.
