Book Description HTML

Award-winning contemporary young adult novel. “Mark Wakely weaves an unusual tale with characters that are both emotionally and psychologically rich… The story is told from George’s perspective and in a first-person narrative voice that is as clear as it is compelling. The prose is beautiful and evocative at times and I enjoyed the author’s peculiar turn of phrase, the humor, and his knack for vivid descriptions… It is a delightful read.” —Readers’ Favorite “A compelling, down-to-earth exploration of the challenges and fun of being a senior in high school, of being a son, a brother, and a friend. George’s is an authentic voice and Wakely has an ear clearly attuned to teenage speech. The story flows from page to page describing ordinary, and some not-so-ordinary events, in a low-key style that carries the reader along effortlessly.” —Semi-finalist, 2021 BookLife Prize by Publishers Weekly
