Review: Confrontation with a crossing guard, among other things, nets Ben a rehabilitation requirement to keep a journal, do community service, and take up a hobby. Since his crush teaches a knitting class -- he thought -- Ben signs up, only to wind up hiding this new fascination from all his buddies and his soccer-obsessed father. Diary format grants relatable and humorous insight into Ben's worrying tendencies, the conflict between his father's he-man expectations and his own more studious inclinations, and the discovery that knitting actually de-stresses him.
