Read full description of the books:Duane Homer Leech is going through puberty and it’s not pretty. He’s breaking out in pimples, his voice is changing, and he does something new and stupid every day. He’s starting to notice girls, but when they notice him he only manages to embarrass himself. Worst of all, he sees “ELBOWS” everywhere, where no elbows should be (that’d be code name for a part of the female anatomy). It’s shocking, but he can’t help himself. Death is starting to seem preferable to puberty when Duane makes himself known throughout the school as the guy who started the ringworm scare. His best friend, however, convinces him that it’s an opportunity to do something really cool, as he’s already in the public eye. And eventually Duane makes the most of his infamy.
Very amusing. Duane’s conversations with his best friend are just spot on “guy” communication, where a thousand things are expressed by the word “cool.” Puberty is such an awkward time and Duane’s is particularly painful – both for him and everyone else. It’s humiliating, but he manages to survive with his sense of humor intact. This is a fast read and should leave both sexes giggling uncontrollably.
Read information about the authorAlthough he was never a dedicated student, Paulsen developed a passion for reading at an early age. After a librarian gave him a book to read--along with his own library card--he was hooked. He began spending hours alone in the basement of his apartment building, reading one book after another.
Running away from home at the age of 14 and traveling with a carnival, Paulsen acquired a taste for adventure. A youthful summer of rigorous chores on a farm; jobs as an engineer, construction worker, ranch hand, truck driver, and sailor; and two rounds of the 1,180-mile Alaskan dog sled race, the Iditarod; have provided ample material from which he creates his stories.
Paulsen and his wife, Ruth Wright Paulsen, an artist who has illustrated several of his books, divide their time between a home in New Mexico and a boat in the Pacific.
