You Don't Know Meby David Klass
Synopses & Reviews
You think you know John? Well, lets see . . .
What bathroom fixture did his father have in mind at his birth? What amphibian plagues John in band? Does algebra have a use, besides torture? Who or what is Lashasa Palulu? Who is Glory Hallelujah? Who is Violent Hayes? What do they want from John? If friends are people who like you, does John have any? Why do fools fall in love? If school is a place for learning, where does John go every day? How can anyone whos fighting a secret battle for his life know anyone, really? And how can they know him?
One minute Im short, the next minute tall, one minute Im geeky, one minute studly, my shape constantly changes, and the only thing that stays constant is my brown eyes. Watching you. Thats right, Im watching you right now . . .
John wrestles with the certainty that no one really knows him. Although his hidden thoughts are hilarious, with razor-sharp observations about lust, love, algebra, and everything, John's home life involves an absent father, a mother who works long hours, and her boyfriend, who is abusive to John.
