Fans of Andrew Smith and Matt de la Pena will be captivated by this summer-in-the-life of a teenage guy growing up in a trailer park in Eugene, Oregon.
Travis plans to spend the summer as follows:
• Working on his basketball game with his friend, Creature.
• Reading excerpts from Creature’s novel-in-progress: The Pervert’s Guide to Russian Princesses.
• Canoeing around the lake, trying to catch a glimpse of the beautiful girl who just moved in.
• Not getting into trouble, not going back to juvie . . .
• Searching the homeless camps for his mother, with a jar full of cash to help her get back on her feet.
From a powerful new voice in YA literature comes an unforgettable account of growing up, making mistakes, and growing out of the shadow of drug abuse.
