To Jaykae: Life Stinx

Jean Davies Okimoto

Tor Books



No duh! Not only are Jason's parents divorced--his mother acts like he has the plague and his father thinks shouting is the ultimate motivational tool--but his best friend has moved to California. It gets worse: his father decides to remarry and it turns out his stepbrother is Mr. High School All-American. Jason finds solace in a chatroom when he strikes up romance with cyberpal. She wants a picture...of his stepbrother. Oops.
