  • The Jeff Movie

    by Brian Jaeger
    The story has nice girls and slutty girls, drunk guys and less drunk guys, a wise friend who speaks with a Southern accent no one understands, an angry Vietnam vet, Club Ugly, and more debauchery than you can wave your index finger at in a shame-on-you kind of way. The story is also sweet and kind, but the reader has to search really deep for that, and it would pay to download copies for all your family and friends so that you can search for those elements in some kind of book club.

Young readers will enjoy the story because it's them (only without ... more
