Andrew Smith

A boarding school is the setting in this smart and funny work from the author of Passenger (2012). Self-proclaimed loser Ryan Dean West is a 14-year-old junior at Pine Mountain School where he plays wing for the rugby team. He's two years younger than his classmates, head over heels in love with his best friend Annie and stuck in the residence hall reserved for the worst rule-breakers. With the help of his sense of humor, rugby buddies, and his penchant for doodling comics, Ryan Dean manages to survive life’s complications, even when it feels like everything is falling apart.
