There's humour here, but also some sharp insights into teen social dynamics.

It was an entertaining book. I like how the main character, Sherman, helps the defiled girls even at the point where his own reputation is at risk. Recommend to people who wants to have a good and easy read in a short period of time!

I really REALLY enjoyed this book, and I'm a grown women. I laughed out loud while reading it. A wonderfully quick read. Another hit from Susan Juby.

A piece of hair had fallen away from his comb-over. Fred isn’t very old, but he only has about eight strands of hair left on the top of his head. He does a lot with them, though.
