A teen at boarding school grapples with life, love, and rugby in the illustrated YA novel Winger (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers; $16.99).  Ryan Dean West is a fourteen-year-old junior at a boarding school for rich kids. He’s living in Opportunity Hall, the dorm for troublemakers, and rooming with the biggest bully on the rugby team. When the unthinkable happens, he has to figure out how to hold on to what’s important, even when it feels like everything has fallen apart. “. . . alternately hilarious and painful, awkward and enlightening . . ." Publishers Weekly, starred review.  Smith is the author of Ghost Medicine, In the Path of Falling Objects, and The Marbury Lens
