Jimmy, known by his friends as Meathead, wants to be a good kid… he really does. But his friends are wild and lead him into serious trouble. Stealing, fighting slingshot battles, and lying to girls, Meathead hilariously struggles to be honest while enduring growing pains and dealing with a terrible loss. Set in the suburbs in the late 70s, even Meathead starts to understand what it takes to grow up and be a good man.
A Note From the Publisher
“Once in a blue moon a writer takes it upon himself to tell the story of what it’s really like growing up crazy, goofy, loopy, secretive, schmaltzy, sweet, sensitive, sorry and oversexed. This book for young adults is a truthsayer.” –Gerald Hausman, author of Little Miracles
“Zimmerman’s young adult memoir is thrilling, hilarious, and dreadful as he stumbles through adolescence, experiencing the losses, celebrating the victories, and searching for absolution.” –Jonathon Scott Fuqua, award-winning author of The Reappearance of Sam Weber
"...a very natural, off-the-cuff graphic novel of life in the fast and often foolish lane of young adulthood." –Stay Thirsty Magazine
