Bruiser by Neal Shusterman
Tennyson is unhappy when his sister Bronte begins dating the boy everyone calls "Bruiser". Determined to break up their relationship he goes to Bruiser's house only to find him comforting his younger brother after the death of their pet bull. The two boys become friends and Bronte's relationship with Bruiser deepens. But Tennyson begins to notice something odd about Bruiser - whenever anyone close to Bruiser is injured, he takes on their injuries. The danger is that as Bruiser becomes more entwined in their world and with their friends, the many injuries he absorbs will threaten his life once and for all.
