Jonathan is a young man just out of school with his first job that he hates, an apartment in NYC that he may lose at any time when the owner gets out of jail, and a girlfriend who is his total opposite. The best parts of his life are the two dogs he is keeping for his brother (currently on an assignment in Dubai) and the comic books he creates as a hobby. His girlfriend doesn’t like the dogs or appreciate the comics. He’s trying hard to squeeze into a life that doesn’t fit him.
Rosoff writes with humor and insight. For me this was a front-to-back read at one sitting. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
