Angry Management by Chris Crutcher



I don’t know the answer to the last question-Angus could certainly shoulder his own book-but I don’t generally get the notion to write a sequel to a novel that I’ve already taken two years to write. But during those two years I always fall in love with my characters, and I loved revisiting some of them in this other, shorter form. But Angry Management isn’t simply a tribute to those characters I love: it’s also a tribute to some of my fans. Those who have read Whale Talk may remember John Simet as the swimming coach/teacher and mentor to T. the main character.

Book title: Angry Management. Personal Response: I personally liked this book because it has short stories in it. I can relate to some of the material in the book. Personal Response: This book was really good. Chris Crutcher managed to weave three completely different stories, while also hitting on the larger points and subjects of adolescence. The writing was emotionally charged, raw, and realistic, and the characters were incredibly believable. Plot: The first story is about Sarah Byrnes, a strong girl whose abusive father burned her face, and whose mother abandoned her when she was young. Her and Angus Bethune, whose parents are both gay, embark on a roa Personal Response: This book was really good

It was not what i expected. The stories are real. In some way i could relate to all 6 of the characters. Crutcher not only made the book relatable, he made it emotional. I can honestly say i cried. Chris Crutcher is a true Young Adult author. Every teenager should read this book.

Every kid in this group wants to fly. Every kid in this group has too much ballast.

Mr. Nak's Angry Management group is a place for misfits. A place for stories. And, man, does this crew have stories.

There's Angus Bethune and Sarah Byrnes, who can hide from everyone but each other. Together, they will embark on a road trip full of haunting endings and glimmering beginnings.

And Montana West, who doesn't step down from a challenge. Not even when the challenge comes from her adoptive dad, who's leading the school board to censor the article she wrote for the school paper.

And straightlaced Matt Miller, who had never been friends with outspoken genius Marcus James. Until one tragic week—a week they'd do anything to change—brings them closer than Matt could have ever imagined.

Chris Crutcher fills these three stories with raw emotion. They are about insecurity, anger, and prejudice. But they are also about love, freedom, and power. About surviving.

And hope.

I loved this book - It was so good and cleverly written - I love the way Crutcher's characters talk to the reader or seem to and make it easy for the reader to become involved with their lives - Read it! You should not be disappointed.

I had to pick a book for my Young Adult Literature class and since I read Period 8 by Crutcher, i decided to read another one of his books. My teacher suggested Angry Management. I love this book. It was not what i expected. The stories are real. In some way i could relate to all 6 of the characters. Crutcher not only made the book relatable, he made it emotional. I can honestly say i cried. Chris Crutcher is a true Young Adult author. Every teenager should read this book.

Chris Crutcher does a marvelous job of taking characters we have met before and telling us "the rest of their story"! Again, fascinating story lines, captivating characters, and even though they are involved in high stakes drama, he is able to put some very good laughs in along the way. If you have read ATHLETIC SHORTS or the story of SARAH BYRNE, you will definitely want to pick this book up. Angus and Sarah together? Yep! But there are more just as interesting characters that you care deeply for as you read their stories of how they ended up in Anger Management group.

Your typical Chris Crutcher story. I've loved his other books and loved this one as well.

I pre-ordered ANGRY MANAGEMENT months ago and have counted down the days till its release. Chris Crutcher, as always, does not disappoint. From the first story that utilizes past characters Sarah Byrnes and Angus Bethune, I was pulled into their lives intensely. It was genius to bring back the character of Mr. Nak to guide the reader through the lives of past beloved characters and a new one or two. I loved this book even more than DEADLINE, Crutcher's last book-- and that's saying a lot.
This is another one I will be buying for my friends who care about kids, as well as those who just love a great story (stories, actually).

The first story is okay. Two other stories were boring.

Right from the prologue CC creates an amazing thought process. fascinating and fantastic. Three short stories and every one made me laugh or cry or both.
Chris Crutcher has done it again. He always leaves me wanting more of his characters and with this book he gives us more. just like all Crutcher books: Loved it loved it loved it!
