"Will has always been troubled by his short stature, but on his 16th birthday, he starts to grow--and grow, and grow"-- Provided by publisher.
Will Daughtry is just shy of five feet, and is resigned, bitterly, to being tiny forever. His only comfort is his best friend and stepbrother, Drew (6'3"), and their pal Monica (5'10"), the girl he's pined for since fifth grade. With them, he feels whole; everyone else sees him as a half man. But when Will stumbles onto Drew and Monica kissing, he realizes he's on his own. That's when he starts to grow. Astonishingly fast. New possibilities open up: sports come naturally, girls are throwing themselves his way. But as his growth spurt shows no signs of slowing, Will has to figure out what to do with himself-- and all of this new "himself" he never expected to have. -- adapted from jacket

This is an incredibly great story. I would recommend it to anyone, especially high schoolers since that is the age of the main characters. There’s a wonderful atmosphere to the whole story that is both surreal and very, very real at the same time. Multiple times throughout the book I was thinking to myself, there’s no way this can possibly work out.. but I was wrong. The moral is to remember your roots. Lots of cursing and a little violence.
