Quintessential boy's book - story of a boy growing up beside a jock, discovering that maybe the jock isn't what he first supposed he was at first impression. Alternatively, the jock discovers the boy isn't what he appears to be, either. A good story to let any child around ten or elevenish read, as that's the age they'll begin the poisonous first impressions.

from back cover:
Everybody knows Crash Coogan, seventh-grade football sensation. He's been mowing down everything in his path since the time he could walk--and Penn Webb, his dweeby, vegetable-eating neighbor, is his favorite target. After all, Webb's not just a nerd, he's a cheerleader too.
Crash and his best buddy, Mike, can't think of anything more hilarious than making Webb's life miserable. But Crash starts to realize that Webb has something he may never gain, no matter how many touchdowns he scores. And when Mike takes a prank too far, maybe even for Crash, the football star has to choose which side he's really on.
