This week we cover Bruiser by Neal Shusterman. In this book, we follow Bronte, Tennyson, and Brewster as they navigate regular teenage tribulations with the added difficulty of Brewster’s special power. This book takes us on a journey through the highs and lows of pain, love, sacrifice, and responsibility. Expect for Charles and Asia to reaffirm their friendship to each other as they break down the heavy material in this book.
Next week we will be reading chapters 1-30 of Inkheart, book 1 in our new series, Inkheart.
