Publisher's Summary

A sizzling young adult novel about Chad, a teenager living near the New Jersey boardwalk who becomes obsessed with the Bozo - the clown who sits above a tank of water, taunting people until they pay a couple of bucks to try to dunk him. But even as he tries to master the slashing humor of the Bozo, Chad finds he also needs to learn humor's healing power if he is to help his best friend recover from a serious illness. Emotionally rich, filled with fascinating detail about life on the Boardwalk, this is David Lubar's breakthrough novel.

    "Great Book"

    I found this book very enjoyable. Hearing the book with a full cast really brought it to life. The main character reminded me of when I was 15 and really brought back lots of memories for me. I highly recomend this book to young and old alike.

    "Beautifully written"

    This book is appealing on many levels. The narrator is a deep, but compelling character that exposes the vulnerable side of adolescence that we all experience at some point in life. The need to make our own decisions, but to learn from others around us is a recurring theme in this sometimes humorous, always touching book. First loves, support of parents and the desire for greatness are all seen in this well written and always enjoyable walk down the boardwalk during a summer of growth and maturing.

    "the audio makes it come alive"

    Good story based as much rich characters as on the plot of the story. It is well read and this in itself will help it hold the attention of the younger audience.
