My Best Year
Synopsis for book:
There are two groups of people in the world. Really only two groups. The people who loved high school and the people who hated high school. And everyone knows what group they are in.” Paul and Julie Clampet want their autistic son Toby to have a great senior year in high school. They want him to catch a winning touchdown, ride in the homecoming parade, and go to the homecoming dance. After being expelled from his high school they find a broken down school in Indianna where they hire the teachers and kids to conspire to give their son his best year ever. Funny, poignant, a comment on the times we live in, My Best Year is up there with Perotta’s Election for diagramming the heartbreak and triumph that is high school.
