Abstract:

"It's the nineties, and Tosh Livingston, straight-A student and superstar athlete, is living the dream--he's made it out of upstate New York and into the incoming freshman class at Harvard University. But after an accident blows up his basketball-playing hopes, he discovers a new purpose in life--to win the frenzied competition for a spot on the staff of the Harvard Harpoon, the school's legendary humor magazine. Along with Lao, his pot-smoking roommate from China, their friend Meera, a passive-aggressive science major from India, and Zippa, a Jamaican student-activist with a flair for cartooning, Tosh finds that becoming a member of the Harpoon is weirder and more dangerous than anyone could have imagined. Success requires pushing themselves to their limits and unearthing long-buried secrets that will rock their school and change all of their lives forever."--Publisher.
