Earl Pryor is the biggest thirteen-year-old anyone ever saw. He's taller than a lot of grown-ups. He's got a hairy chest. He shaves. Everyone thinks Earl's such a tough-guy troublemaker. They come to him looking for a fight. And Earl will fight them. But he's not so tough. He loves his moms, loves his dad. Still, a man's got to take care of himself, especially when his world is falling apart.
