Chris Crutcher achieved what he wanted within this book It is composed of short stories and some of them are continuations using the characters from other books Of course I want to read all of the other books now to totally understand these characters Another aspect of the book that I appreciated was the prelude to each story Crutcher provided why he chose to write that particular story or who encouraged him in the writing process for that story It was interesting to be in an author s prewriting thoughts picking plots and character namesThere are six different stories within this book Although the characters deal with athletics it s really a secondary conflict in all of their lives The characters each face something much serious including gay parents a gay friend a sick friend the death of a best friendetc It goes to show stories within stories Even within a short story Crutcher writes in a way that shows such character growth within teens In the story about a friend with AIDS the main character Louie grows tremendously from a friend afraid to be near the AIDS victim to learning a lesson about living a full life I m going to see how far I can go in the time I getMain characters include all high school teenagersAngus a fat kid always bullied and ready to take his stancePetey Shroshrire and his father who wrestle each other in front of the student body and parents in an effort to show than just the best wrestlerPetey and Chris Byers who are scheduled to wrestle each other this school year Chris Byers is a female wrestler and Petey is afraid to forfeit but also afraid of losing Lionel Serbousek and Neal were best friends Neal is the cause of the death of Lionel s parents and brother during a boating accident Louie and Darren Louie lost his girlfriend in a prior Crutcher book and in this story he deals with his new friend and coworker Darren an AIDS victimThis book is a fast read but the material is not light Crutcher takes serious issues head on and doesn t ignore the fact that teenagers deal with death love loss disease and even worse
