Publisher's Summary

Norman Tuttle is, in a word, awkward. He falls off his father's fishing boat into icy Alaskan waters. He quietly sweats on gorgeous Laura Magruder at the school dance. He gets himself on the bad side of Leonard Kopinski, an overgrown eighth-grader who shaves. As Norman contemplates a long and lonely adolescence on the Last Frontier, he's sure there's more to life than being the klutziest kid in Alaska. In 15 closely linked stories that follow Norman from age 13 to going-on 16, Tom Bodett combines rugged Alaskan adventure with a warm and funny story of a boy who may not be as lonely as he thinks.

Enjoyed it very much

This is one you can listen to with the older kids. We laughed out loud together! Wish he would write some more adventures with Norman.

not Tom's best work

I am a Tom Bodette fan. I like his work very much. However, this predictable work full of overworked ideas and phrases is a long way from his normal quality. It is not horrible or unlistenable, just a disappointment.
