nice novel

I love this novel!

a great young adult novel for teens and adults!

What a great read! This is one of my favorite books so far this year. Ryan Dean West is a wonderfully likeable character that I highly recommend you meet. The novel is a sweet coming of age story of Ryan Dean and his fellow rugby players as they experience friendship, loss, girls, troublemaking, and other wonderful things. From the same author that brought you The Marbury Lens. READ WINGER.
