Now available in paperback, Newbery Medalist Jerry Spinelli's hilarious, poignant story of cocky seventh-grade superjock Crash Coogan.In his strongest work to date, the author of Tooter Pepperday gives readers the world through the eyes of cocky seventh-grade super-jock Crash Coogan. He got his name the Christmas Day he received his first football helmet and used it to knock his cousin Bridget in the snow--and he's been running over people ever since.

The activities of a school bully as told from the bully's perspective. Shallow, vain, and arrogant seventh-grader Crash Coogan has been bulldozing over people his entire life but his most consistent victim is Penn Webb--a Quaker who lives down the street from Crash.
