Product description

Review

"David, cofounder of the band Belle & Sebastian, has woven a Rube Goldberg-esque tale that moves at breakneck speed... Jack himself--equal parts Holden Caulfield and Tristram Shandy--is a delightful maniac to follow, and David's panache with dialogue and situation comedy is on target."
--Booklist

"...a delightfully off-kilter high school comedy..."
--Publishers Weekly

"Witty U.K.-flavored phrases--Jack calls his parents' constant bickering the "Regular Madness"--will keep readers laughing, and the quick pacing assures they won't get bogged down with all the twists and turns."
--Kirkus
