A classmate's challenge to prove that literature is related to real life spurs Ditto to leave home during spring vacation and chronicle his life-changing adventures.

From the Inside Flap:

Refreshingly unconventional, an exciting story and a witty game played between author and reader.

It all begins with a challenge. Morgan sneers at Ditto for relying on books as his sole source of information, and defies Ditto to prove that literature is ever related to life. Ditto takes up the challenge, writing an account of what is happening to him. His father has a heart attack, he makes friends with a couple of burglars, gets involved in a drunken brawl and has a life-changing encounter with the girl of his dreams--. True? Or just a story? It's not for Morgan alone to decide--

From the Back Cover:

"Excruciatingly funny as well as touching." --Publishers Weekly
