Winger - Andrew  Smith
Winger is awesome!
I'm not talking about the book, although it's awesome too, I'm referring to the character. Winger, a.k.a. Ryan Dean is an incredible young man. Not only smart, he is a great friend. Throughout this book, his unfailing loyalty for friendship is tested, time and time again. Since his best friend is so diverse, it never ends, but he isn't swayed in the least. He even gets the girl of his dreams. He is the star player on the Rugby team, and still maintains a level head. I like that a lot.
The end of the book surprised me though, and in hindsight, it really shouldn't have. All the signs were there, though I was oblivious to them until the end. Plus there was a throat-choking moment there too.
Sure made for an epic story.
