Doo Doo Rules!
I’m Duane. Duane Homer Leech. Don’t ask.
I’m 12. And one week. What I want to know is, where is this whole puberty thing going? So far it’s just something put on earth to destroy me.
And I don’t have a clue what’s coming next.

Gary Paulsen is the distinguished author of many critically acclaimed books for young people. He lives in New Mexico and on the Pacific Ocean.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7–Twelve-year-old Duane confides to readers, I should have seen it coming, but no one ever does. It's called puberty. With laugh-out-loud lines and self-effacing humor, Duane describes 20 days during which he has disturbing dreams, sees ELBOWS everywhere (a euphemism for part of a woman's body), gets giant zits (recognized even by his parents), and notices his voice is changing (along with other body parts). He constantly falls over his own feet at school, babbles at girls, and manages to embarrass himself–several times–in front of the entire student body. But Duane has a good friend and a grandmother in whom he can confide. Ultimately, he recognizes that he's normal and understands that this awkward, awful, alarming time will eventually end. Short chapters and clipped language keep the pace fast and create empathy for Duane's plight. Just like the fledgling bird that he observes from his bedroom window, depicted in a comical black-and-white drawing at the start of each section, Duane's confidence and self-acceptance develop and he realizes that he will not only survive puberty, but also grow and become adept at many new things.–Maria B. Salvadore, formerly at Washington DC Public Library
