Exploits of a reluctant (but extremely goodlooking) hero

by Maureen Fergus.

His mother says: I hope the wisdom he's gained from this experience will inspire him to change his underwear once in a while.

His Father says: The only thing that would make me prouder is if he stopped asking me to teach him how to get a girl to lift up her skirt.

What would he say? It's hard to believe, but maybe there really is more to life than boiled wieners, TV reruns and looking out for Number One.

Meet a teenage hero who likes nothing better than to sit back with a bucket of fried chicken and a girlie magazine, waiting for his family plumbing fortune to come to him. But when our hero gets into some serious trouble, he's forced to volunteer at a local soup kitchen where he finds himself at the center of a struggle between the rich and the poor, the selfish and the selfless. It is a worthy cause he could care less about until the day he stumbles across a shocking piece of information. What happens next surprises everybody, including our very reluctant hero... Exploits of a Reluctant (But Extremely Good Looking) Hero is a novel of adventure, intrigue, Ukrainian dance lessons, disruptive horseplay, inappropriate ogling and some truly heroic consumption of junk food. Adrian Mole meets South Park in this often outrageous and always hilarious trip into the inner world of a boy teetering on the brink of manhood.
