The Underdog

Cameron and Ruben Wolfe are brothers. They spend most their time throwing one-handed boxing matches (they only have the one pair of gloves) and plotting to rob the local dentists. But what Cameron really wants is to meet a girl - a real girl, not like the ones in the lingerie magazines. But who could ever love an underdog like Cameron Wolfe?

Portrait

Australian author Markus Zusak is considered one of today's most innovative and poetic novelists, and is the award-winning recipient of a 2006 Printz Honor for excellence in young adult literature. His acclaimed novel The Book Thief was a bestseller in the UK, the US and Australia. He lives in Sydney with his wife and daughter.

Zitat
Praise for Markus Zusak "The Book Thief will be appreciated for Mr. Zusak's audacity, also on display in his earlier I Am the Messenger. It will be widely read and admired because it tells a story in which books become treasures. And because there's no arguing with a sentiment like that."- New York Times Book Review "Zusak doesn't sugarcoat anything, but he makes his ostensibly gloomy subject bearable the same way Kurt Vonnegut did in Slaughterhouse-Five: with grim, darkly consoling humor." - Time Magazine
Praise for Fighting Ruben Wolfe "Zusak debuts with an intense tale about boxing, brotherly solidarity, and searching for self-respect. . . . Engrossing." - Kirkus Reviews "Zusak's first-person narrative is electrifying. . . . Coarse and poetic at the same time, the power of Zusak's prose and vivid imagery will continue to reverberate long after the last punch is thrown." - Teenreads.com Praise for Getting the Girl "Zusak uses simple but poetically poignant language to convey Cam's inner teenage turmoil, confusion, and heartache. This highly recommended novel is a sad, funny, loving, and ultimately heartwarming coming-of-age story." - Voice of Youth Advocates "The extravagant prose does work well in describing the relationship between Cam and Octavia, demonstrating the often-ignored fact that teenage boys also fall breathlessly and heart-stoppingly in love." - The Horn Book
