Winger is a difficult book to describe. It manages to be smart, funny, and heartbreaking all at once. Ryan Dean West is a bit of a jerk: a scrawny, athletic, foulmouthed grade-A jerk at an elite boarding school where he's in good company. Yet he's refreshingly real and raw, and you will find yourself sympathizing with this messed-up teen.

Read this book if

* you are an unrepentant Dead Poet

* you can't get anough of those elite boarding school coming-of-age novels

* glittery heroes make you roll your eyes
