Teaser: 7 Kinds of Ordinary Disasters

I'll be reviewing this one this summer (along with the first book, One Butt Cheek at a Time), but until then, I thought I'd give you a peek at the writing.  Gotta say, first couple pages are pretty funny.  And the first line?  Priceless.

Okay, so here's the deal: there are books about volcanoes erupting and meteorites hitting Earth and plane crashes where the survivors have to eat people—those are extraordinary crises.

That's not what this book is about. I'm more the ordinary catastrophe type. This second semester of my sophomore year, there are basically 7 KINDS OF ORDINARY CATASTROPHES: high school, boys, heartbreak, family, job, friends, and the future.

Well, I guess everyone's life is full of ordinary catastrophes. These are mine. Hi, I'm Gert Garibaldi. Welcome to my crazy life.
