This book is very intriguing and mysterious. One of the main characters, Tennyson, is a confrontational high schooler who most people consider a bully. However, he honestly does not see himself the same; all fights he gets into seem justified from his perspective. The conflict of the story arises when Tennyson finds out his little sister is dating a guy with less than respectable reputation. Yet again, we find out that this "reputation" is entirely incorrect. The poor guy has been labeled as something he definitely isn't because teenagers are cruel! Tennyson begins to change his tune about Brewster when he discovers why everyone calls him Bruiser. We discover that Brewster is covered in bruises. Tennyson becomes determined to find out what is really going on in Brewster's home life and this is where the mystery begins to unfold... This is no regular abuse case, something else is at play in this book.
