This review and others on my blog Falconer's LibraryHow do I love Chris Crutcher Let me count the ways There's his foul mouthed big hearted FB rants about the state of the country and the role of old white guys like himself There's the humor that slides into even his darkest books There's the way his work is all rooted firmly in eastern Washingtonnorthern Idaho just like he is There's the way he populates that territory with diversity and is honest about how challenging it is to live in the rural west if you don't look and act like a cowboy There's his willingness to tell it like it is instead of how it should be There's the way every single one of his protagonists is a high school athlete no superstar future pro but a dedicated talented hardworking team member There are books like this that make you care so deeply about the characters that show teenagers grappling with real life issues Smart kids who are trying to grow up right but don't have all the answers yet Kids from crappy families who find their own mentors and support systems As an adoptive mom I was so in awe of the way he shows us all the reasons why Annie should cut her losses and count herself lucky to never see her bio family again yet makes us understand why she's unwilling to do so This is also one of those rare YA novels in which there's not a hint of romance which is so refreshing Annie has other shit to deal with thank you very much I may have a tiny bit of a crush on Walter and I'd like to kick Pop Howard in the teeth Or possibly an easier to reach place
