When Tyler goes to spend two weeks with his Uncle Pete, a writer on the hottest sitcom on TV, he has a plan. Tyler is going to do everything he can to get on the show. It looks like things are going his way when he befriends the daughter of one of the stars, but he quickly gets on the wrong side of one of the other stars, who is also the co-producer. At first, Max Casella sounds too old to be convincing as a 12-year-old boy, an important concern in a first-person narration. This problem quickly fades as the snappy plot moves along and Tyler's personality begins to shine through. Tyler is awkward and often uncertain but also extremely funny. Listeners will laugh at and with Tyler and will get a revealing behind-the-scenes look at television along the way. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
