Angry Management by Chris Crutcher

Crutcher brings us up to date on a few of his characters from past books - Staying Fat For Sara Byrnes, Athletic Shorts, Whale Talk to name a few. Sara Byrnes has met up with another fat kid who possibly will help her to finally come to terms with her horrible past. Matt Miller tries to help another of Crutcher's past characters with devastating results. With each character we see how anger by the character or acted upon towards the character caused so many terrible things to happen. This quick read showing the power of angry emotions offers no solutions and little hope. Not my favorite Crutcher book. JDW 9/28/09
