Meet Bo Brewster, a high school athlete at war with the adults in his life. Following angry confrontations with his football coach, his English teacher, and his father, Bo turns to the only adult he believes will listen: Larry King. In his letters to Larry, Bo reveals his secret ambition to compete in an upcoming triathlon and become an ironman. But Bo must put his ambition on hold when the principal orders him to join Mr. Nak's Anger Management Group. Here, Bo meets a tough pack of survivors who teach him some hard lessons about strength and endurance. When the day of the triathlon finally arrives, Bo will find his greatest support in the Anger Management Group and-in a surprise guest appearance-Larry King. In Ironman, Chris Crutcher draws on his decades of experience as a family therapist to tell a funny, realistic, and keenly sensitive story about growing up in the heat of struggle. It's a story about standing up, getting knocked down-and standing up again.
