Jerry Spinelli's "Crash" novel takes place over the course of John "Crash" Coogan's seventh grade year with brief glimpses of his life when he was younger. During his seventh grade year, John is forced to confront his changing stances on violence, aggression, and bullying. In particular, John has to think about who he really is and whether his true thoughts, feelings, and actions match up with the ultra-competitive and physically dominant jock "Crash Man" persona that was given to him when he was just a little boy. John's changing relationships with his neighbor and bullying victim Penn Webb, best friend and fellow football player Mike Deluca, and beloved grandfather Scooter help shape John's transformation from someone who always did what others expected of him to someone who acts with more sincerity and stays true to his thoughts, opinions, and beliefs. At the beginning of the novel readers meet the one person who does not call John "Crash," Penn Webb. Penn moves to John's Pennsylvania neighborhood on the eve of the boys' first grade year. Penn, a true nonconformist, represents so many things that go against what John believes in: violence, wealth, and athletic ability.
