Zits: Chillax (Paperback)
— Jocelyn is one of our top children's book experts at Tattered Cover
by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman is in a league of it's own. This is the
first book I've ever read that I consider a perfect YA beach read for
guys, though there's no reason everyone wouldn't love it- from reluctant
to speedy readers- it's style and illustrations keep you reading. All the characters you love in the Zits comic strip are here in their lovable goofiness but even better.
Jeremy's bandmate Tim's mother has been diagnosed with cancer. Instead
of dragging the plot down this generates support, positive action and
rallying from the whole gang. Wouldn't it be great if everyone who read this book was motivated to help a sick friend in some caring way? Now hold that thought- but don't blame me if you laugh out loud as you read along.
Somehow Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman combine the serious subject of
cancer with the humor of well-meaning, hormonal teenagers that results
in a feel-good book that is better than the sum of it's parts. For all those teens out there that are tired of vampires and dystopian angst- or who just want a break from it." ~Jocelyn
