Butterball winds up having to talk with a therapist twice a week after beating up Maurice, someone Butterball thought was a friend.
Butterball is not happy with his life. His mom NYC and away from his dad and he gets teased because of his weight.
Until Butterball hits Maurice. Now the popular guys are paying attention to him. They want him to beat up another guy. And home life is changing too, as Butterball begins to understand what's really going on with his mom.
A good story and thought out. Not necessarily for reluctant readers like I thought at first. There are some real issues here, and a good first teen novel for 50 Cent.
