Bruiser by Neal Shusterman

Great book! This is the first book I have read by Shusterman, and I have heard many things about him. And this book definitely lived up to what I had heard.

The book starts off with Bronte and Tennyson (love their names by the way!) arguing about who Bronte wants to date. Typical brother, sister stuff. Bronte is dating Brewster, often known as Bruiser because of his size and the many bruises and cuts that cover his body. Brewster is a loner at Bronte and Tennyson's school, until Bronte starts talking to him.

Tennyson sets about to ruin Bronte and Brewster's relationship before it even starts, but after following him home one day, Tenny notices something different about Brew.

As Bronte and Tennyson get closer to Brewster, they notice that he different than they originally thought, and try to unravel his mysterious home life.

Over the course of the book, the reader gets to watch as all three characters grow and change and affect each others lives. Great book about growth and realizing not everyone is what you think they are. Definitely recommend to anyone.
