Please give my mom Ann, a high school library media specialist, a warm welcome here on A Bookshelf Monstrosity as she reviews Crutcher's new book :)
Summary in a Sentence:
A collection of short stories featuring characters from earlier books by Crutcher such as Sarah Byrnes and Angus Bethune.
I just finished reading Angry Management by Chris Crutcher today. I enjoyed it very much. It was basically 3 short stories or novellas in one book. One interesting thing was that Crutcher used characters from some of his previous works--Angus Bethune, Sarah Byrnes, Mr. Simet from Whale Talk, and others. But you would not have to read any of his previous books to enjoy this book. Mr. Nak is the leader of the Angry Management group at Global Community Health. I like the case notes Mr. Nak writes at the beginning of each novella (Nak's Notes). He describes these as First Impressions. I liked each story, but my favorite was "Meet Me at the Gates, Marcus James." Recommended for fans of Crutchers' Deadline and Whale Talk.
