Brilliant, Funny, Quirky, Engaging
Solomon is a teenager who has not stepped one foot outside his house in three years. Lisa is a high school junior who decides to “fix” him so she can write the best college application essay in the history of ever. Needless to say, all does not go as planned.
Extreme agoraphobia is not so easy to fix, Lisa’s boyfriend isn’t loving this project idea, and Lisa’s college essays are on a deadline. Heartwarming hilarity ensues, with just enough poignancy to tear at your heartstrings without changing the overall humor of the book. Well done, sir. Well done.
THE BOTTOM LINE: The slump buster to end all slump busters. We couldn’t put it down. For fans of The Inexplicable Logic of My Life and anyone who needs to remember the sheer joy of reading.
