Today's book: Stick by Andrew Smith
They call me Stick.
I am six feet tall, an inch taller than my brother, Bosten, who is in eleventh grade.
I'm thirteen, and a stick.
My first real name is Stark, which in my opinion, is worse than being called Stick. It was my great-grandfather's name, and I suppose my parents were all into connecting with our roots or something when they decided to put it on me. My great-grandstick lived and died in Ireland and never once set his eyes on me in his entire life. But I'm pretty sure he'd call me Stick, too, if he ever had. (Page 5, ARC)
