Love means never having to say, "You're awkward." Crap, or is it "you're sorry"? Regardless, Jay Baker is awkwardly in love with two girls and making no apologies for it. Mostly because he assumes they don't care. But when an awesomely bad plot twist throws his life into a tailspin, Jay's story takes a dramatic turn for the weird. Nothing he knows will ever be the same. 

"Lol" funny and 100% original, The Edumacation of Jay Baker is Jay Clark's whip-smart debut novel, exploring what it means to be young, in love, and infatuated with something (or someone) you can't have. In other words: to be in high school.
