Read full description of the books:
"Character, Driven" is a powerful and hilarious coming-of-age novel for young adults by acclaimed author David Lubar.
With only one year left of high school, seventeen-year-old Cliff Sparks is desperate to find a girlfriend and "come of age." But he's never had much luck with girls. So when he falls for Jillian, a new classmate, at first sight, all he can do is worship her from afar. At the same time, Cliff has to figure out what to do with the rest of his life, since he's pretty sure his unemployed father plans to kick him out of the house the minute he turns eighteen. Time is running out. Cliff is at the edge, on the verge, dangling and holding on for dear life.
"Readers will giggle and guffaw at Lubar s trademark humor, while their heartstrings are tugged and feelings are tied in knots. This exquisitely crafted coming-of-age novel gets down and dirty and even rebellious without sacrificing honesty, thoughtfulness, or respect." "Booklist," starred review
"Readers will relish clever wordplay, fantasies, and a major secret. In a genre full of barely likable teenage protagonists, Cliff is a charmer, and readers will be cheering him on to finally come of age. Cliff is a character driven to fulfill his quest, and readers will be with him every step of the way." "Kirkus Reviews," starred review
"Filled with wordplay and moments of wry observation and revelation, this contemporary coming-of-age-novel follows the trials of a big-hearted teen who suffers some hard knocks. . . . Cliff s humorous perspective on his predicaments doesn t lessen their sharp impact." "Publishers Weekly," starred review"
