Description


Seth Baumgartner just had the worst day of his life.

His girlfriend dumped him (at Applebee's), he spied his father on a date with a woman who is not his mother (also at Applebee's!), and he lost his fourth job of the year. It's like every relationship he cares about is imploding, and he can't figure out what's going on.

To find answers, Seth decides to start an anonymous podcast called The Love Manifesto, exploring "what love is, why love is, and why we're stupid enough to keep going back for more." Things start looking up when Seth gets a job at a golf club with his hilarious and smut-minded best friend, Dimitri, and Dimitri's sister, Audrey. With their help, Seth tracks down his father's mystery date, hits the most infamous bogey in the history of golf, and discovers that sometimes love means eating the worst chicken-salad sandwich you can ever imagine.

About the Author


Eric Luper is the author of the teen novels bug boy and big slick. To impress a girl, he once made an Eric Luper teddy bear, complete with college sweatshirt and icy-cold beverage in one hand and teen novel in the other. The girl dumped him soon after, but that bear is still a treasured possession in his wife s drawer, so it all worked out in the end. Eric lives in upstate New York with his family.
