Winger by Andrew Smith

I am super obsessed with this book right now. If you haven’t read it, you need to. Seriously. I’m super super obsessed.

Ryan Dean West is a 14-year-old junior. Yes, you read that correctly. He also plays rugby.

Both of these things are rather uncommon. And yet, Ryan Dean West is an effortlessly relatable character. Andrew Smith’s writing is accompanied by illustrations–comics and commentary on Ryan Dean’s life drawn by RDW himself (actually drawn by Sam Bosma).

Go read it. Now. Do it.
