When Doug is forced to move to "stupid Marysville" on account of his father's new job, he expects to be one-hundred-percent miserable. But despite the whole town's suspicion of him for a crime he didn't commit and a bully of a father and an older brother, Doug finds friends in a spunky girl named Lil, a science teacher with a with a mini rocking horse named Clarence, and a kind librarian who teaches him to draw Audubon's birds. This eccentric and vibrant cast of characters comes together brilliantly in a hilarious and heartwarming story about a boy trying to figure out just who he is, and bringing together a community in the process.

This little review totally does not do justice to how much I really loved this book. To be continued.
