Sounding Off is award-winning children's author Ted Staunton's 24th book, and his first for a young adult audience. Featuring the town of Hope Springs, home of his popular Monkey Mountain novels and Hope Springs a Leak, Sounding Off is a skillfully woven account of the farces and foibles of a community that could be found anywhere in Canada.
Sam Foster is every teenager struggling to find out who he is and what his place is in the world. He is entering Grade 9, his first year of high school, filled with the usual worries: he's tall and gawky, he's constantly embarrassed, he tends to fall in love (or lust) with the nearest female. He wishes he were invisible-yet, somehow, he keeps being thrust into the spotlight.
