Earl got big. Or, rather, big got Earl. Earl Pryor is the biggest thirteen-year-old anyone ever saw. He's taller than a lot of grown-ups. He's got a hairy chest. He shaves. High school kids ask him to buy them beer. Everyone thinks Earl's so tough, such a troublemaker, such a man. They come to him looking for a fight. And Earl will fight them. But he's not so tough: He loves his mom, loves his dad. Still, a man's got to take care of himself. He's got to make people respect him. If Earl's dad has taught him anything, he's taught him that. When Earl gets suspended from school for a week for fighting, he figures he'll fill up the days somehow. But a lot can happen in a week. His family is falling apart. Everything he counted on is falling apart, and Earl's still learning what it really means to be a man.

display_description Thirteen-year-old Earl Pryor is much too big for his age, and much too powerful for the anger that rages within him when classmates tease him, the girl he likes disappoints him, or his parents' problems get too real.
