Friday Spotlight: Bruiser

Bruiser by Neal Shusterman:
Bronte and Tennyson are twins who have always gotten along fine in school (despite their professor parent's strange choice of names). Tennyson is both popular and on the varsity basketball team and Bronte is a swimmer, so Tennyson can't understand why Bronte would sacrifice her social standing to date the creepy looking loner Brewster. Sure she likes to take in strays, but this is going too far.

Still, there's something about the Bruiser (as everybody calls Brewster behind his back) that Bronte likes and Tennyson is going to have to get to the bottom of it, if only so he can better understand how to stop what's going on. But, what he finds will shake everything he thought he knew about the world and even his own family.

This is a thought provoking book that will keep coming to mind long after you've turned the last page. If you're in the market for a title that is a little more substantial, this is the perfect match.

Review and trailer by the librarian, blame her if you want to.
