“When he takes a picture of a passed-out street person for his photography class, class-clown Blake expects an 'A.' He doesn't expect that he'll soon be ditching his girlfriend to prowl skid row, or conducting midnight corpse-checks at the morgue to track down his best friend's long-lost mom. This authentic (and surprisingly funny) debut novel is the story of a crash course in what it means to be a boyfriend, and a friend, and a man.”
— Jennifer Laughran, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA
