Everyone thinks seventeen-year-old Michael Biamonte is a real clown, and in 1958 who would have suspected what was really wrong? But behind the funny facade, Mike's life is out of control. He can't sleep or focus on his schoolwork, and he's lost his appetite. How can he succeed at track or sing in the variety show feeling as he does? Even his best friend, Frank, doesn't seem to understand. It appears his math teacher, Miss Wustick, wants to make his life miserable, and his classmate, David, is always picking on him. Tony and the guys on the bridge constantly taunt him, and he doesn't think Beverly even cares. How can he go on? Mike's life isn't worth living. When a suicide attempt fails, he must face up to his fears and begin the difficult road to recovery. Mike learns that there is hope at the end of his tunnel of darkness.
