Danny's a sophomore gymnast, destined for state championships and scholarships... and resigned to a life of being pushed around by bigger guys. Kurt's a gigantic tank of a football player with major scars, both physical and emotional. When the steroid-infused captains of the football team push bullying to a deadly degree, an unlikely friendship between Kurt and Danny might be the only thing that can set things to rights.

This is a stunning debut. We have two distinctly realistic guy narrators, each with his own baggage, each trying to make it in that barbed maze of high school. Gritty to the extreme, I'd recommend it to fans of Ellen Hopkins, Terry Trueman, or Chris Lynch.
