Depicting the full spectrum of adolescent alienation, this engaging, coming-of-age narrative is a humorous blend of novel and memoir. A sensitive, quick-witted boy from a small town, Jack Muir adores his mother, yearns for affection from his father, and lives in the shadow of his accomplished brother. Sent to a boarding school at a young age, Jack must quickly decide what sort of person he will be–the type that succumbs to the pressure of bullies and the school system or the type that fights back. With a unique and authentic voice, this darkly humorous tale portrays the road to depression as seen through the naivet√© of youth.
