"[T]his is a story about healing, and although Gerald stumbles as he takes his first steps--he frequently retreats to the fantasy world he calls Gersday and struggles to trust the girl he allows to get close...his candor invites sympathy from the first page." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation A deeply dysfunctional family, the aftermath of reality television, and a 17-year-old boy's desire for a different life create a painful and moving young adult novel. Even 10 years later, Gerald Faust can't escape his notoriety as a child reality television star nicknamed "the Crapper." Now 17, Gerald has major anger issues that he struggles to work on in therapy, and is in special education at his mother's request. Bullied and ostracized at school for his behavior as a "problem" child on NETWORK NANNY, Gerald's only refuge is a fantasy world called Gersday. Working at the hockey rink, his develops a crush on his co-worker, Hannah. Dreaming of escaping his horrible family, Gerald wonders if he'll ever forge a different path. A.S. King is the author of the critically acclaimed ASK THE PASSENGERS.
Editors Note Haunted by his past as a child reality television celebrity, teen Gerald Faust struggles with violent anger that has relegated him to a very lonely world and the special education program at school, where he starts to feel dangerously close to snapping--until he chooses to create possibilities for himself that he never knew he deserved. By the Edgar Award-nominated author of Please Ignore Vera Dietz. 25,000 first printing.
