Now a senior in high school, Nick becomes confused about the changes that have been taking place in himself and his childhood friends, especially Kevin's sudden ego mania and his own feelings about Frieda. Reprint. AB. K. VY. SLJ.
The solar system is a much better place because of books by Ron Koertge. Spinning common adolescent experiences into gold, Koertge captures the natural lingo and orbit of the modern teenage male. In The Boy in the Moon, he introduces us to Nick, a teen with so many craters, pockmarks, and puss-filled volcanoes on his face that he considers himself an untouchable alien from the moon. It certainly doesn't help matters that--suddenly--Nick feels his knees wobble around his best friend Frieda. It also doesn't help that Kevin, his other best friend, was transformed into a remote, golden-haired sun worshipper during a summer in Los Angeles. Romantic, lively, smart--Nick is a hero for all of us. He may even find his way back to earth!
