Overview

"I am 13 years old. I just realized that I’m not as good-looking as my mom led me to believe. I wear two pairs of underwear...everywhere. These are my stories."

It was 1985, and if you weren’t a diehard Knight Rider fan then you probably wouldn’t survive on the savage and perilous playground of St. Charles private school.

Overview

"I am 13 years old. I just realized that I’m not as good-looking as my mom led me to believe. I wear two pairs of underwear...everywhere. These are my stories."

It was 1985, and if you weren’t a diehard Knight Rider fan then you probably wouldn’t survive on the savage and perilous playground of St. Charles private school. It was a time unlike any other, filled with strange fashion choices, schoolyard extortion rackets, and first dates. It was a time for kids who stuck firecrackers in cats’ asses, a time for pretending to be murdered to freak out neighbors, and a time for realizing that no one really liked you. It was the perfect time for a Dirty Little Altar Boy.

Middle-class, middle child, way uncool hair--these are the true confessions of a 13-year-old at the crossroads of junior high and hellfire eternity.

    This Boys Life...very interesting

    This book reminded me of my own experiences as a pre-teen. I really liked the story about Valentine's day, and would recommend it for that story alone. The stories were funny and had a thread of great 1980's references. There are some enlightening moments I related to and a good amount of humor. Glad I checked it out--you should too :)

    This book could be your life! A great read...

    I found this to be a thoroughly engaging book, with equal parts humor and touching realism. This story of a middle school outsider is told through a series of funny, sweet, and painfully truthful stories which will pull you in the first paragraph, it is entertaining and enlightening. The writer boldly depicts his life on the cusp of learning what kind of man he will become, the increasing harshness of a world to those who stand out, the genius of Chuck Norris, why a suit jacket makes a man, and that it is ultimately worth a day of orthodonic torture for your first real kiss. The book has a strong voice it's original, witty, endearing, vivd, and genuine--avoiding any of the cliched or self-indulgent subjects of many memoirs. I highly recommend you enter the lovely and twisted world of this 'Dirty Little Altar Boy.'

    'Dirty Little Altar Boy' is a dirty, little, hysterical blast!

    I couldn't put 'Dirty Little Altar Boy' down once I started reading it. Humor doesn't even begin to cover it--the author, Brandon D. Christopher, is hysterical. The stories in here are simply amazing--one minute you're laughing, and the next minute you're cringing in sympathy for a 13- year-old kid who wears two pairs of underwear and tries to self-analyze why. This is a great book--I seriously haven't laughed that hard since reading 'Naked' by Sedaris. These two authors are very similar in their style and in their humor.
