by Justin Halpern
Through a humorous lens, you’ll follow Justin as he draws a terrible, inappropriate portrait of his first crush and makes her cry, steals a hobo’s most precious collection, and stumbles into adult relationships as a dishwasher at Hooters. Though the book’s purpose is primarily to make the reader laugh, there’s a certain amount of honest sweetness in these pages. Besides savoring his embarrassments, we also get to see him grow as a person and fall in love for the first time.
A doctor tells him, "You are good at sitting," in one chapter and the good news is that he's also good at storytelling. If you're looking for a laugh-out-loud, feel-good book, this is perfect! It's a quick read and will leave you looking forward to his next installment.
