Review: Even though Cliff cautions from the outset that he might not be a reliable narrator, that warning is easily forgotten until the end of the novel. A likeable protagonist, Cliff is a 17-year-old ready to be finished with high school despite having a year left. His quest for a girlfriend seems closer to an end when new girl Jillian catches his eye. While his home life might be a bit on the edge with his unemployed father, Cliff's social life is looking up. This rare novel captures the teen male voice in all its sarcasm and authenticity.
