KLIATTIn this latest collection of daily comic strips chronicling the life of 15-year-old Jeremy, he must contend with his aging boomer parents (they're "abnormally normal," he complains), the pressure of buying just the right gift for his girlfriend, his sometimes less-than-supportive friends, and the general hilarious angst of being a modern suburban teenager. The prize-winning cartoonists specialize in cleverly depicting metaphors and fantasies as real: Jeremy's mother is shown literally talking her head off, for example, while Jeremy and his father are depicted as sumo wrestlers in a tussle to get Jeremy to put out the garbage. Most teens will find it all too easy to relate to Jeremy, and laugh out loud at how he deals with all the burdens he must bear. (Zits Sketchbook No. 9). KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2005, Andrews McMeel, 128p. illus., Ages 12 to 18.
