I should have seen it coming. A long time before it came I should have known.I was six or seven years old and there was a girl living next door named Peggy. She was a year older than me and a lot stronger and we were wrestling and she held me down....

All of a sudden it seemed there was something about girls that wasn't all bad. I didn't know what it was but I should have known that this first feeling with Peggy Ollendorfer meant that down the road, later, I was in for a big surprise. Afterward, when I was a little older, if you'd asked me what the surprise was like, I'd have said it was about like getting hit by a train. Puberty.

Listener Opinions

    " Hilarious, touching and morbidly fascinating, this book is sure to bring relief to boys suffering the injustice of puberty, and insight to the girls who can't seem to figure the boys out. I couldn't help laughing hysterically at poor Duane's plight, even while knowing that, whatever doesn't kill him will only make him stronger. "

    " Very short, entertaining, slightly over-the-top read about a boy dealing with zits, girls and lack of coordination while dealing with a heightened state of arousal. Students would love it. "

    " Paulsen is only slightly out of touch with the true preteen voice here, but flashes of comedic genius more than make up for that slight detraction. As readers would expect with a book of this type, irreverencies abound; however, the inappropriateness is somewhat modified by Paulsen's clever use of innocent-sounding metaphors. (ELBOW.) "

    " Tender and hilarious view of puberty from the journal of a growing boy. You can't help but remember your worst days of middle school when nothing ever went right. "
