Just when things start coming together for Kirk Tobak, it looks like everything might fall apart. Fifteen years old, Kirk has always been a loner. He's smart, but does badly in school. He's funny, but never had too many friends. But when he gets demoted into a new English class, things begin to look up: He meets a rock-n-roll slacker, who becomes a real friend; and there's a girl who likes his writing-she might even like him. And his new job is great: He reads to a dynamic young blind woman who somehow makes him feel good about himself.

And that's when the bottom falls out. Kirk comes home one night to a note from his mom on the kitchen table. She's gone off to California with her boyfriend, leaving Kirk alone. Kirk is determined to stay and make it on his own, but he's juggling a lot at once, and he doesn't know how long he can last. Readers will find themselves cheering for Kirk in this funny, touching first novel.
