Author Talk, Peter Wood, “The Boy Who Hit Back”

“When Matt discovers a dark secret about Barlow, an ex-prizefighter, he’s convinced he is the only person who can save him and risks everything in the process. As Matt sinks deeper into New York City’s skid-row, a hell-hole infested with liars, cheats, thugs, depravity, kidnapping, and death, he discovers that sometimes, the brightest lights come from the darkest places. Determined to claw himself and Sailor back from the brink of destruction, Matthew discovers new bravery, innate cunning, and something even more rewarding than he could have ever imagined. “

“We’re in John Green territory, without the tears, as a tough boy and a smart girl drag a punch-drunk fighter back to life and along the way make their own comebacks. Peter throws a sweet sentence and can knock you out with a paragraph!” Robert Lipsyte, author of The Contender
