We all want to be a 10, but let’s face it - that’s just not going to happen. Somewhere along the way, we get stuck. Seemingly unable to break free from our self-imposed entrapment, we have to face the truth and own our awkwardness.
In stuck.at.seven [while awkwardly aiming for ten], Edmund Christopher McCombs attempts just that as he chronicles some of his life's more inappropriate moments through a series of short stories using an unusual lack of shame, normally only reserved for street-walkers and reality t.v. stars.
Unabashedly funny, yet intimately relatable, the stories within stuck.at.seven [while awkwardly aiming for ten] are relayed in a genuine tone that transcends the page as Edmund provides some jaw dropping shock and a smidgen of "oh-no-he-didn't-just-go-there" awe.
While this book is about Edmund's journey and mishap-filled perspectives; the universal topics of growing up ugly, passive aggressively loathing an evil boss and, as a child, discovering that your favorite Disney classic has been taped over with midget-infused adult entertainment, really resonate to the wider audience.
Simply put, being stuck.at.seven is about embracing all of the awkwardness and self-doubt that capture us all. Edmund is just putting it out there for your judgement and the potential self-infliced public shaming he'll receive.
So, if you’ve ever been stuck in a job, stuck in a relationship, stuck in a rut, stuck in the small, circular suction drain that lines your Grandma's swimming pool attempting to quell the teenage hormones raging inside of you - you’re in the right place. However, if you’ve ever been called a prude by your loved ones, you should probably leave now, or carry on and prove them wrong. Either way - thanks for the support!
