So when he falls for Jillian, a new classmate, at first sight, all he can do is worship her from afar. At the same time, Cliff has to figure out what to do with the rest of his life, since he's pretty sure his unemployed father plans to kick him out of the house the minute he turns eighteen. Time is running out. Cliff is at the edge, on the verge, danglingand holding on for dear life.

A Ya Book for older Teens, like the 17 year old character of the story. A surprising ending that makes the story more serious than just a boy wishing for a girlfriend. It was hard to read as parent; wishing it was better for our boys in this world. Hopefully this book will provide a another view of high school life to young adults and to parents.
