Additional Comments (Please type or paste your review here) Brutal is about rebellious teen Poe Holly whose mom temporarily abandons her forcing her to move in with her father whom she's never met. Once she starts attending her new school she begins to try and prevent her next door neighbor from being the victim of some nearly fatal beatings from the school's big jock Colby Morris. Brutal is easily one of the best fiction books i have read all year. It had its funny parts and shocking parts. i found it very exciting and hilarious and i highly recommend it.
