A funny, refreshing look at the most awkward time in any young boy's life—from school, girls, and parties to parents, friends, and the dreaded "sex talk"
 
Darcy Walker is a normal 16-year-old boy—but he can handle that. He can even cope with parents, deal with parties, and soldier through the occasional fight. He's certainly got his infatuation with the beautiful Audrey under control, is clearly the best at spending quality chess-time with his nerdy best friend, Noah, and doesn't blink an eye at the misadventures that can occur when kayaking on a school excursion. He's a teenage boy—he can handle anything. That is, if only he'd learn to keep his mouth closed first.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Rich, layered verse reminiscent of works such as Sonya Sones' Stop Pretending."  —Booklist starred review on Love, Ghosts & Facial Hair and A Place Like This

"Darcy’s first-person narrative is sharp, reflective and witty delivering a simple tale that is fast paced but laced with poignant moments . . . The serious teenage issues of bullying, friendship, teen and family relationships are tackled but without the angst . . . students of both genders will enjoy this uplifting coming-of-age novel. A must for the collection."  —Magpies
