p In the Fight That Never Ends the author describes his daily battles with an assortment of people at his school as a child and teenager...a very interesting book. Though I am familiar with some of the stories, Tim Brown makes these true stories sound new and fresh. The story focuses on some not so nice kids in school who gave the author a hard time for whatever reason or other. I used to think mean kids at school grew out of their delusion..however this book puts a myth to that assumption. The author devotes 300 or more pages talking in detail about school harassment and how his school encouraged it. The story is a testament to the bad upbringing of the kids at school, in addition to the behavior of teachers who had to deal with it. I finished the book in four days, it kept me so interested, and it's one I'm going to read again. I think you will like this book.
In the Fight That Never Ends the author describes his daily battles with an assortment of idiots at his school as a child and teenager...a very interesting book. Though I am familiar with some of the stories, Tim Brown makes them sound new and fresh. The story focuses on some not so nice kids in school who gave the author a hard time for whatever reason or other. I thought a lot of mean kids at school would grow out of it. This book puts a myth to that assumption, as the 30ish author still finds himself the target of internet postings and harassing calls (as he mentions in his book). BTW The part about the bullies chasing him into the field, and chasing him into the highway, are accurate. I also heard about the threat in Science in the 8th Grade...the father of the boy who threatened the author was in politics locally, so the school had its hands tied then. The author though is tough enough to fight back, and continues to fight (as the book name suggests). He devotes 300 or more pages exposing what happened. The kids from school who harassed Tim have to be bigger idiots that I thought to keep dwelling on bothering somebody they haven't seen in so long, a testament to their bad upbringing. (I love what the bus driver said BTW.) There are lasting consequences to what the idiots at school do. I finished the book in four days, it kept me so interested, and it's one I'm going to read again. I am giving Tim Brown's book five out of five stars :-)
