Crash

eBook
A modern classic from Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli.
"Readers will devour this humorous glimpse of what jocks are made of." —School Library Journal, starred review
Cocky seventh-grade super-jock Crash Coogan got his nickname the day he used his first football helmet to knock his cousin Bridget flat on her backside. And he has been running over people ever since, especially Penn Webb, the dweeby, vegetarian Quaker kid who lives down the block. Through the eyes of Crash, readers get a rare glimpse into the life of a bully in this unforgettable and beloved story about stereotypes and the surprises life can bring.
"Without being preachy, Spinelli packs a powerful moral wallop, leaving it to the pitch-perfect narration to drive home his point" —Publishers Weekly
"Spinelli's writing style is great for kids in this age-group, fast-paced and funny." —Booklist
From the Trade Paperback edition.
