Crash and Burn by Michael Hassan

David “Burn” Burnett has had it in for Steven “Crash” Crashinsky since elementary school.  David is positive the two are connected in the same way as Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort- one will have to die in order for the other to live.  Crash recounts their entire twisted history, including on-and-off periods of friendship and fighting, rivalries over girls, and horrific family tragedies.  All of this leads up to April 21st of the boys’ senior year of high school: the day David brings automatic rifles and explosives to school.  This novel is a perfect combination of hilarity and heartbreak, with an easygoing party-guy narrator who never shies away from telling exactly how it all went down. ~Lynette Pitrak
