About this title

Synopsis:

Feeling trapped by another summer at his parents' dumpy cottage, teenager Colm worries about not having a girlfriend, a driver's license, or a life, only to find himself falling in love, trashing his father's new car, and experiencing a broken heart.

Review:

What are the rules? "Be prepared for surprises." "It's hard to steer when you don't know where you're going." And here's a classic one: "There are no rules." It's this last one that takes Colm a whole summer to understand. With delicious irreverence, new author Paul Many describes the ups and downs in a normal teenage life--revealing all the crazy, unexpected growth that happens along the way. Readers will roar as Colm struggles to get his driver's license, fights with his domineering father, and juggles his feelings for two different girls. Although these rites of passage are nearly universal, Paul Many explores them with a refreshing tone.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
