Read in January, 2011

Paulsen makes it look effortless to write of a young boy's rapid ascension into the awesome and terrifying swells of the hormonal tide. It cannot be so. Using humour and metaphor, he captures the essence of puberty in all it's gawky and uncertain glory - adult readers will get a kick out of reminiscing. Will teen readers also appreciate it's honesty, and take heart from the courage Duane finally musters? Most likely, and it's definitely a gem for those who have flown the nest.
