Publisher Description

Thirteen-year-old Bobby Connor is a normal adolescent boy--at least he hopes he is--just trying to survive middle school. But it seems he's being foiled at every turn, and even his own body is conspiring against him. And when his math teacher is seriously injured from the shock and fright of witnessing just how out of control Bobby's changing adolescent body is getting, he starts to worry he's anything but normal.

Faced with expulsion from school for violating the student handbook code, Bobby opts for therapy--Correctional Erectional Therapy. It's official: Bobby Connor is not normal. But in this uproarious and heartfelt novel, he's going to do his darndest to make it seem that he is . . . or maybe just try to make it through middle school.

Hysterically Funny!

I have never read a more creative and funny novel than this one!
The author can very well connect to the average life of a teenager in middle school. Being one myself, I thought the author was spot on with every detail! Also, each character has their own unique personality, which makes it even more fun to read! Ever page is hysterical, and I hope it receives some kind of prestigious book award. This is by far the best book I have ever read in my entire life! I am age 14 and saying I wish Mr. Sitomer, (comedic genius) the best in his future! I applaud this book and I would love to see a sequel!

Best Wishes!

P.S.
This is so funny, I think it should be turned into a major motion picture!!!
