This is the story of a man's first kiss--at least, that's what it indicated at first. Because, in the beginning, Mathew Willard stated that he was old enough to vote, drive, and pay bills, but then the story deviates to 6th grade. Was he a man or a boy? So I was a little confused right there.
As you move forward, you realize this is all just a little boy's silly quest to get a girl. The thing is that he turns into a do-or-die situation, like if he didn't get the girl, the world, as we know it, would surely end. Frankly, I found this to be far-fetched.
This is basically the Boys Club's guide to girls--a subject they know little to nothing about. Wet dreams, butthead jokes, and burning crotches--you'll find all this and more throughout the book.
Loaded with juvenile antics and sprinkled with fairly humorous commentary, story is a quick and easy read, rating at a mediocre level. This didn't really tickle my fancy too much, but it's an okay comic-book style childhood story.
My rating: 2.5 stars
