A hilarious novel for teenagers about faking it till you make it – and what it means to be a man.

Jack Sprigley isn’t just a late-bloomer. He’s a no-bloomer. He’s about to start the last term of year nine and puberty is still a total no-show.Worse yet, he hasn’t heard from his friends all holidays. He assumes they’ve finally dumped him and his child-like body – except then he finds out that it’s much worse than that.
