Alex Peter Gregory, you are a moron! Laurie slammed her palms down on my desk and stomped her foot.

I get a lot of that. One car crash. One measly little car crash. And suddenly, I'm some kind of convicted felon. My parents are getting divorced, my dad is shacking up with my third-grade teacher. I might be in love with a girl who could kill me with one finger, and now I'm sentenced to baby-sit some insane old guy. What else could possibly go wrong?

This is the story of Alex Gregory, his guitar, his best gal pal Laurie, and the friendship of a lifetime that he never would have expected.

    " Angsty teenage humor. It almost made me like old people. Almost. "

    " I thought that this book was among the funniest books I have ever read. I was cracking up the whole time and was totally involved in it. Although it was hilarous, it was really touching. It showed that everyone has a good side to them, even if they don't show it. "

    " What if an otherwise great kid did something really bad and refused to take any responsibility for it? Sonnenblick takes this question and creates the character of 16-year-old Alex Gregory. Like many teenagers, Alex is mad. He is angry at his dad for dating his 3rd grade teacher, he's mad at his Mom for going out on dates, and he's upset about his parents separation. After drinking alcohol Alex decides he is going to drive to his father's place and let him have a piece of his mind. He winds up in an accident (injuring a gnome lawn statue) and is required by Judge Judy Trent to do 100 hours of community service at a nearby nursing home. Enter Solomon Lewis, an old and crotchety Jewish elder who is dying of emphysema. Needless to say, community service starts out pretty rocky for Alex. Sol insults him in both Yiddish and English, and Alex reveals no remorse for his actions in letters he is required to write to Judge Judy. Eventually the relationship between Sol and Alex develops. They find commonalities, including a love of music and guitar and Alex comes to realize that Sol is more complicated that he first thought. The story wraps up a bit neatly-most broken families and angry teens don't transform themselves that quickly. But this is still a great story of intergenerational frienship that strikes very real chords. "
