Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"The shrinkadinks think I have a screw loose. Ain't playing with a full deck. Whackedout wiring. Missing marbles." Irreverent, foul mouthed seventeen-year-old Cricket is the oldest ward in a Catholic boys' home in Maine--and his life sucks. With prospects for the future that range from professional fighter to professional drug dealer, he seems doomed to a life of "criminal rapscallinity." In fact, things look so bleak that Cricket can't help but wonder if his best option is one final cliff dive into the great unknown. But then Wynona Bidaban steps into his world, and Cricket slowly realises that maybe, just maybe, life doesn't totally suck. AGES: 14 up AUTHOR: Scott Blagden enjoys being a dad to his teenage twins. In addition to writing, he has been self-employed in real estate for thirty years. Dear Life, You Suck is his first novel.
