Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling author of Challenger Deep, Neal Shusterman, delivers a suspenseful, eloquent, and thrilling novel that you won't be able to stop thinking about after you've put it down.  

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 she nor Tennyson is prepared for the truth of what lies below the surface.

Told through Tennyson, Brontë, and Bruiser's points of view, this dark, twisting novel explores friendship, family, and the sacrifices we make for the people we love.

Such a good book

I had to read this for my Christianity class summer work. I thought I'd hate if because I expected it to be a Jesus-y after-school special of a book. But this book was awesome. It was well written and wasn't too heavy on the morals. Neal Shusterman did a good job on making teen fiction that was witty and non-mopey.

Amazing!

This book is absolutely amazing! It's not at all what I thought it would be. This is such a creative book filled with a twist you won't believe! Now one of my favorite books ever!
