Loved the feel of it. Loved the way it was written - wasnt as good as drums, girls, dangerous pies (in my opinion) but def a good read. ( )

Oh my. So funny, and wise. I do warn you to get past the first few pages. Probably you don't want to give it to a child under age 13. My only complaint, really though, was that it took so short a time to read and now it's over. I do like this author.... ( )

This book is about a regular boy who gets drunk one night and decides to go run into his dads house because his dad cheated on his mom and left them. He gets into the car and wrecks intoi some old ladys yard. He opens his eyes to see 1. A cop staring at him. 2. A yard gnome that he ran over. He has to do community service by helping an old man, Slomon Lewis. He writes notes to the judge and the judge writes nots back. FUNNY, GREAT, and SUPRISING! ( )

Book description
16-year-old Alex decides to get even. His parents are separated, his father is dating his former third-grade teacher, and being 16 isn't easy, especially when it comes to girls. Instead of revenge though, Alex ends up in trouble with the law and is ordered to do community service at a senior center where he is assigned to Solomon Lewis, a "difficult" senior with a lot of gusto, advice for Alex, and a puzzling (yet colorful) Yiddish vocabulary. Eventually, the pair learn to deal with their past and each other in ways that are humorous, entertaining, and life-changing.
