Read from January 01 to 15, 2011

A dead-on account of life as a 14-year-old boy (as painful as that account might be), and the adults these boys become, and the worlds they inhabit in each stage ... and yet so much more. Equal parts humorous and heartbreaking, hopeful and cynical, it's a telling not to be missed.
