From syndicated humor columnist Marc Acito comes a wildly inventive and hysterically funny novel that is equal parts Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Fame, Risky Business, Dead Poets Society and The Catcher in the Rye. It's 1983, and 17-year-old Edward Zanni wants to study acting at Juilliard, but his newly remarried father - who earns too much for Edward to claim scholarship money - refuses to pay. So, Edward enlists the aid of his creative theater pals to swindle the money from his father.

"Marc Acito's comic novel follows an adolescent actor through his final year of high school. The lead character's roller-coaster life involves family, school, personal identity, and a horny blur of sex, actual and imagined, with both girls and boys. Such a character both self-dramatizes and passes through a range of personae, but Jeff Woodman's narration captures this young thespian perfectly, even when reading as a young man pretending to do the voices and accents of others. Woodman never loses that central voice and still manages to distinguish among the host of others who live in this teenager's head. G.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
