BruiserFirst Line:

“If he touches her, I swear I’m going to rip out his guts with my bare hands and send them to his next of kin for lunch.”

Synopsis: 

Tennyson is not surprised, really, when his family begins to fall apart, or when his twin sister, Brontë, starts dating the misunderstood bully, Brewster (or The Bruiser, as the entire high school calls him). Tennyson is determined to get to the bottom of The Bruiser’s reputation, even if it means gearing up for a fight. Brontë, on the other hand, thinks there’s something special underneath that tough exterior. And she’s right…but neither she nor Tennyson is prepared for the truth of what lies below the surface. Told through Tennyson, Brontë, and Bruiser’s points of view, this dark, twisting novel explores friendship, family, and the sacrifices we make for the people we love.

Goodreads / Amazon

I absolutely loved this novel. I don’t remember too much of what happened because I read it back in 2011, but I remember it was one of my favorite books that year. This is one of those rare books that moved me in ways no other book has. It was powerful and deep and beautiful. I loved the message it had and the ending was a total shocker. (:
