What marvelous and well-rounded characters! Every one of them has a reason for being, and the author reveals them, sometimes through a dream character named Hey-Soos. Respect everyone’s journey.
There is also some side exposition about school curriculum, particularly in history and civics, that just now is in the news and general awareness. (Book was published in 2007.)
This is my first exposure to Crutcher, but I will read him again.
Also pleased to see the publisher, Greenwillow Books, still with the excellence I remember from when my kids were small.… (mais)

This book touched on a lot of different topics from bullying, religion, social acceptance, social issues, child abuse, etc. It also showed that no matter what a person looks like on the outside, the inside is where the scars and beauty are hidden.

after rereading Ironman, i cannot explain why i originally assigned this novel two stars. seems mean and stupid and inaccurate. like, i'm a crutcher fan, so how did i miss how crutcher-y and great this novel is?! i'm glad i reread it, and i'm even more glad (what even is this pollyanna-ass sentence) that i just don't even rate books anymore.
