John wrestles with the certainty that no one really knows him. Although his hidden thoughts are hilarious, with razor-sharp observations about lust, love, algebra, and everything, John''s home life involves an absent father, a mother who works long hours, and her boyfriend, who is abusive to John.
From the Publisher:
You think you know John? Well, let’s see . . .
|What bathroom fixture did his father have in mind at his birth? What amphibian plagues John in band? Does algebra have a use, besides torture? Who or what is Lashasa Palulu? Who is Glory Hallelujah? Who is Violent Hayes? What do they want from John? If friends are people who like you, does John have any? Why do fools fall in love? If school is a place for learning, where does John go every day? How can anyone who’s fighting a secret battle for his life know anyone, really? And how can they know him?

Praise

Guardian (London)
"In the end, this is a life-affirming read. But it gets there the honest way, by showing just how awful the world looks to this boy, and by making it impossible for any reader to avoid sharing his despair....But what I admire most about this book is the quality of the prose. Sentence after sentence, it is a joy to read." - Maureen Freely 10/28/2001
