Tennyson: Don’t get me started on the Bruiser. He was voted “Most Likely to Get the Death Penalty” by the entire school. He’s the kid no one knows, no one talks to, and everyone hears disturbing rumors about. So why is my sister, Brontë, dating him? One of these days she’s going to take in the wrong stray dog, and it’s not going to end well.BronteMy brother has no right to talk about Brewster that way — no right to threaten him. There’s a reason why Brewster can’t have friends — why he can’t care about too many people.

Finishing the most heartbreaking book- I hate things that make me cry, so this is obviously a surprise. Bruiser by Neal Shusterman. It is about an overly empathetic boy, and his empathy manifests physically. It is enlightening and beautiful and heart wrenching. Damnit. I need a serial killer novel asap.
