    I've been a fan of Brent Hartinger since THE GEOGRAPHY CLUB, which I'm delighted to hear is going to be a movie (yay!).

    His characters are fascinating, fun and realistic. As for the theme of this book, surprises, there are a lot of them in this story. While Russell deals with issues of dating, heartbreak and love, he finds himself drawn into a group of teen freegans, shocked at this very different side of life where scavenging for food, roadkill and wild weeds are everyday meals. When things get dangerous, Russell discovers new strengths in himself -- and his friends.

    A WONDERFUL book about alternate lifestyles and teen romance. Don't miss it!

    Russel has two really great friends, Min and Gunther.Each is very individual, but they accept each other for just who they are. Russel is gay, Gunther is a brainy geek (sort of) and Min is well, just Min!
    They are dealing with their lives full at the moment with the "Elephant of Surprise"! Is it a good thing? or a bad thing? Or maybe it's both. A great story of love, lost love, found love and all of life in between.
    Part of a Series (The Russel Middlebrook Series) But is a good stand alone story as well. These are kids you want to be friends with, you want them to be happy and you hurt for them when they hurt.
