Ever wish you could save the people you care about from feeling any pain? That is exactly what Brewster can do; he absorbs all the pain of anyone he cares about. For example, when his brother, Cody, jumps off the roof and breaks his arm, Cody doesn't feel a thing. Instead, Brew is the one with the broken bone who is stuck wearing a cast. In order to keep the pain and injuries to a minimum Brew usually keeps to himself. However, he soon lets Bronte, a girl with a tendency to pick up strays whether they be animal or human, into his heart and his life is forever changed. Told in four alternate voices (Bruiser; Bronte; Cody; and Tennyson, Bronte's protective twin brother) Bruiser is a compelling read that will certainly leave you with a lot to think about.
