Overview

A funny, satirical, coming-of-age novel.

Hey! I'm John Sullivan, a recent high school graduate who collected his thoughts and dreams and hopes and fears and all kinds of other stuff in a year-long diary through his senior year. When I finished on graduation day, I realized I had quite a collection, as a matter of fact, I had more than 400 pages! So I thought about it and realized that it had a beginning, a middle, and an end, so therefore it told a complete story, which I think might be a book if I remember my sophomore literature class correctly. I am NOT saying it is literature (ha-ha), but I do think it is a book. That is where you come in. I don't think it is much of a book if I'm the only one who reads it. It is just a diary then, that will remain on the floppy disk in my computer desk in my bedroom. Instead, you could read it. And tell me what you think. And then I will know if I should have left it in that computer desk. Or not. If you do read it, you'll find that I didn't leave anything out, even the stuff that might embarrass me. I could even still get into some trouble about some of it, but I think I'm ok because I don't think my parents will want to read it because they were there for almost all of it, so it would be a rerun for them. I don't think reruns are bad, but they already lived through this once, so they probably don't want to get all upset all over again. So, go ahead and click away. It was an adventure for me—come on along for the ride!

John Sullivan is right. This is quite an undertaking for a senior in high school. But that is what it is—a diary, a coming of age novel, a satire, and, incredibly, a love story. It is a unique look at one of themost important developmental periods in a person's life.

This book includes many vivid details about when I was in high school. No matter who you are and how old you are, it can relate to one or most of your experiences back in high school. It is a real Life Rite of Passage.

This is a wonderful book that goes into the mind of a senior in high school. You laugh and think throughout the whole book. It brings to life to the many experiences that high schoolers do have to go through. The thought process of a senior student. This is a great book! All I can say is that you should read it!

Michael Fitzgibbons has written a book that speaks of relationshipa and growing to maturity that speaks to the hearts of todays youth. More than that it is a fine love story with characters that you can identify with. Not quite 'Catcher In The Rye'.
