Steven Novak has written what amounts to a comic memoir of his life.  Through a series of essays he takes us through the various stages, from pre-adolescence on through.

As a reader we get to experience many of his adventures, or I should say mis-adventures, dealing with everything a person normally experiences throughout their life.  One of the most memorable scenes I can recall from the book was his first attempt at losing his virginity and how he ended up in a cast as the result.

For an entertaining read I’d recommend it.  It is strictly for adults though.  There is a lot of of strong language, some potty humor, and adult situations.  For that I’d say older teens and adults would be the primary audience.
