  • 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.

Or, "What would I have done had I seen a teenager dragging an ATM machine down the road if he was the totally coolest teenager while I was a goofy middle-schooler?" Young readers will enjoy the story because it's them (only without ... more

Whatever, it's realistic, yet fantastic. You'll hear the rhythms of the yet-to-be recorded songs. You'll hear the voices of the yet-to-be acted out characters. You'll join the... more
