Amazing. I don't often throw superlatives around. This book deserves it. It is a raw, emotional glimpse into the heart of a young man with TS. But it quickly becomes clear that TS is not Sam's main problem. I won't share what I think that problem is, because this book touched my heart, and Sam's problem...

A nice addition to any library.
"Jerk, California" is about a kid who has Tourette's and how he finds out who his dad is, and untangles the lies about him. On the way he meets a pretty girl (who he falls in love with), a crazy coot (who he becomes friends with) and learns about himself.
