Share the moments of comic confusion and tender transformation that make up one boy's wild ride through childhood and adolescence. Meet Will as he struggles up a godforsaken mountain with other miserable campers, tosses aside all scruples to get in with the cool kids at school, searches for the true path to romantic love and tries to live up to his father's impossibly high standards. Funny and affecting, these tales take you through all the ups and downs of growing up, visiting triumph, humiliation, love, loss, kissing - and laxatives - along the way.
