Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jeremiah Reskin has big plans for tenth grade—he wants to make some friends and he wants to take a girls shirt off. Its not going too well at first, but when he meets a group of semibohemian outcasts, things start to change. Soon hes negotiating his way through group back rubs and trying to find the courage to make a move on Renee Shopmaker, the hottest girl in school. At the behest of his composition teacher, Jeremys also chronicling everything in his own novel—a disastrously ungrammatical but unflinching look at sophomore year.

From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

"In a coming-of-age story ultimately shaped by sexual awakening, Mr. Weisberg fondly and hilariously brings every tiny detail to life." Janet Maslin, New York Times

Review:

"Weisberg has written a charming, utterly American first novel." Maureen McLane, Chicago Tribune

Synopsis:

US

Synopsis:

Now in paperback: a perfect re-creation of a school year in the life of an endearing teenager is told with all the comma splices, danglers, run-on sentences--and heroic fantasies--that typify the normal derangements of adolescence.
