One of the most surprising things about this book is that the author is female, and yet it seems as if she may completely understand the thoughts and actions of a teen-age boy.

The main character, Hudson, is a high school senior who has lots of plans for his life and doesn’t want to waste time going to school. He’s had several losses in his life: his father died when he was younger, one friend moved away and the other one is so wrapped up in a relationship, he doesn’t have time for him friend anymore. After talking his mom into letting him be home schooled, He is told he has to take at least two classes at school. While trying to enlarge his dog walking and caring for seniors businesses, and finishing his schoolwork, he really wants a girl friend; however, in the typical high school hierarchy he is sure that the popular girls won’t like him.

This is a lighthearted look at the growing-up years. If you are an adult, you will probably smile as it brings back memories.
