Description
Meet Bo Brewster, a high school athlete at war with the adults in his life. Following angry confrontations with his football coach, his English teacher, and his father, Bo turns to the only adult he believes will listen: Larry King. In his letters to Larry, Bo reveals his secret ambition to compete in an upcoming triathlon and become an ironman. But Bo must put his ambition on hold when the principal orders him to join Mr. Nak's Anger Management Group. Here, Bo meets a tough pack of survivors who teach him some hard lessons about strength and endurance. When the day of the triathlon finally arrives, Bo will find his greatest support in the Anger Management Group and-in a surprise guest appearance-Larry King. In Ironman, Chris Crutcher draws on his decades of experience as a family therapist to tell a funny, realistic, and keenly sensitive story about growing up in the heat of struggle. It's a story about standing up, getting knocked down-and standing up again.

fullDescription
Meet Bo Brewster, a high school athlete at war with the adults in his life. Following angry confrontations with his football coach, his English teacher, and his father, Bo turns to the only adult he believes will listen: Larry King. In his letters to Larry, Bo reveals his secret ambition to compete in an upcoming triathlon and become an ironman. But Bo must put his ambition on hold when the principal orders him to join Mr. Nak's Anger Management Group. Here, Bo meets a tough pack of survivors who teach him some hard lessons about strength and endurance. When the day of the triathlon finally arrives, Bo will find his greatest support in the Anger Management Group and-in a surprise guest appearance-Larry King. In Ironman, Chris Crutcher draws on his decades of experience as a family therapist to tell a funny, realistic, and keenly sensitive story about growing up in the heat of struggle. It's a story about standing up, getting knocked down-and standing up again.

      • content:

        April 17, 1995
        Crutcher reassembles some of the character types he used to riveting effect in his stellar Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes: a teenage misfit narrator enduring grueling athletic training; a tough heroine with a tragic past; a right-wing authoritarian heavy; enlightened teachers; and a sadistic father. At its best, the narrative crackles along in the author's inimitable style. Beauregard Brewster, a would-be Ironman triathlete, chronicles the events that ensue after he insults an oppressive teacher and is forced to take an anger-management class with other troubled students. But Crutcher's message sometimes overwhelms the cast and the story line. Beau's stern father, who has to be right at all costs-even if it means stacking the deck against his son-is one of the few fully fleshed-out characters. Many are either saintly multiculturalists (Beau's gay swimming coach, earlier met in Stotan; ``Mr. Nak'' the Japanese cowboy anger-management teacher; the black female high school principal) or, in the case of the offensive teacher, outright villains. In spite of these flaws, Crutcher achieves many memorable moments-exchanges between the students in the anger-management class, for example, are idealized but often deeply moving. Ages 12-up.
