Young Adult Family Listening • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Norman is at that awkward age when his body is growing too fast for his brain to keep up. He’s grounded so much he feels like a prisoner in a work-release program. He unwittingly finds it easier to offend Leonard Kopinski, class bully, than to impress Laura Magruder, girl of his dreams. Tom Bodett’s 15 separate but related stories weave a tale of humor, adventure, and coming-of-age into a tapestry of one boy’s journey to manhood. Bodett’s laid-back narration gives the listener the feeling of a storyteller telling tales of an adolescence that was hard to live but is pleasantly warm to remember.
