Wyatt is fighting for money at any place you could think of bars, restaurants, alleys, etc. The concept that life isn't fair is a very hard one to understand. This book just broke my heart. Wyatt grows to be big for his age, and he is strong. Tell him to stretch out like an X across asphalt and you've got a parking space.
It could have been as simple as. The beginning of Wyatt's first fight didn't start off so well. He didn't do things the way that other people would. This conflict is resolved by him re-connecting with his his Mom and Dad. When his last fight ends defeat, Wyatt has had enough and goes home. I can see why some people might say that they like when the author gives a lot of background knowledge, and they really liked that about this book.
If I ever go shopping in an actual bookstore which never happens since I am a library fiend , I would for sure spend the money on this book just because it resonated with me so much.

Thankfully, times have changed, and I am not that little girl anymore.
Chapter 27-30 In this chapter Wyatt started to blame Clark because he did not have time to play with him. If you are a resilient reader who doesn't do it out of joy, I don't believe you will enjoy this book. Chapter 14-16 In this chapter Wyatt never said yes to fight but the punch to the pig changed everything, which was when his uncle became a coach to him.

Few people are likely to see this film unless they already agree with its conclusions, and few of those will learn anything new from it. At 12 ½, Wyatt Reaves goes away with his horrible, grotesque uncle and becomes a bare-knuckle fighter, essentially a human fighting dog.
One strong piece of evidence to support my reason is on page 143 and 144 when the main characters Wyatt and his uncle Spade are on the road. Usually all of the conflicts ended with fists thrown at each other in anger or disagreement which shows that Wyatt doesn't have self control over his temper.

Wyatt, slow on the uptake, has trouble remembering what day it is but always knows the month and year. I don't know why, but that scene just stuck with me even after the book was finished. General Surles, the director of the Department of War's Bureau of Public Relations, had hoped that the series would be effective enough to allow similar kinds of army films to be shown to the general public. If you're brave enough to stay and listen, you'll hear an astounding story. As the seriousness of life hits him and he is forced to deal with the issue of mortality, he begins to challenge some long-held beliefs.
Overall I would not recommend this book to a friend. Dally and Ponyboy make it to the hospital in time. Though panoplied with all the pomp and mystical trappings of a Wagnerian opera, its message was as blunt and brutal as a lead pipe: We, the Herrenvolk, are the new invincible gods! Wyatt himself goes though many different emotional phases as he ages, first content with the attention his uncle gives him, then restless because of all the moving, then finally a sense of control as he grows into his role of a man. You see why Spade takes advantage of Wyatt since he is too big for his age, and you get attached to all that drama between Wyatt and the only family he has around who is his Uncle. The series faced a tough challenge: convincing a recently nation of the need to become involved in the war and ally with the , among other things.
