Garvey is a bookworm who is not interested in sports. AT. ALL. Sports is all that his dad wants to talk to him about. Garvey finds comfort in food which makes the distance between his dad and him even wider. Garvey's best friend tells him that he needs to stand up for himself. Garvey has a choice. He can live his life in the same way, or he can make a difference. Which way will he go?
Most of us get to a crossroads where we have to decide the life that we will have. I encourage you to read about Garvey. This novel in verse is so well done. I literally felt as though I could quote each page because it was truly meaningful stuff. Check out the #booksnap I did.
