Brother John Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Brother John

John just wants to fit in somewhere--a challenge for someone who, at 14, stands over seven feet tall and weighs almost 500 pounds. Worse still, the only people who have ever cared for him are either dying or unavailable to him. His life changes, though, when he is forced into fighting one of the Duelists, living weapons, the greatest fighters the world has ever known: he might be able to join them, if he can survive the fight.
