Six short stories, five of them about characters from Crutcher's novels. The protagonists are involved in sports, but the real theme is growing—grappling with something tough and finding the courage to carry on.

Too proud to stay away yet terrified to go, his problems are complicated by his secret love for the elected queen and by the fact that kids have always teased him because both his parents are gay. With wry courage, Angus achieves a triumph that should lighten any reader's spirits. The so-vulnerable Lionel Stotan!

An involving group of stories, somewhat uneven in focus but all thought-provoking and discussable. For months, the two meet, becoming secret best friends even though they can never play together.

Certain to provoke controversy and difficult to see as a book for children, who could easily miss the painful point. Painfully aware of not fitting into suburban teen life in her native Maryland, Clara awakens to feeling alive in Mexico and realizes a sweet first love with Pedro, a charming goat herder.

Beautifully written, this is filled with evocative language that is rich in imagery and nuance and speaks to the connections that bind us all.
