9781921372902: Measuring Up

Jonah’s life has been like riding the perfect wave the wonderfully simple routine of school, partying, and surfing with his friends. With the stress of his senior year looming, he realizes all of that is about to change. Rattled by the fear that he is destined to live in the shadow of his legendary older brother, Link, Jonah’s self-confidence begins to waver, along with his mission to lose his virginity before turning 18. Just when he has decided things couldn't get any more complicated, Link drops a bombshell on his unsuspecting family. Despite these overwhelming transitions, Jonah soon discovers that life has a funny way of sorting out the big issues from the small, and that the answers he’s looking for may be right in front of him. Frank and funny, this coming-of-age novel is a definitive tale of family, friendship, and the pressures of adolescence.

Review:

"This novel puts a 2009 twist on the whole sex, surf, and sun premise that was so beautifully captured in the groundbreaking book Puberty Blues. . . . A fun, humorous coming-of-age story to be enjoyed by boys and girls alike, it will certainly resonate with readers over 15 years of age."  —Australian Bookseller & Publisher



"A modern-day homage to Puberty Blues."  —Courier Mail
