It s in my interests to know about my parents mental problems he reasons Thus when he discovers that his affable dad is quietly struggling with depression Oliver marshals all the daytime TV pop psychology wisdom at his command not to mention his formidable uninhibited powers of imagination in order to put things right again But a covert expedition into the mysterious territory of middle aged malaise is bound to be tricky business for a teenager with more to learn about the agonies and ecstasies of life than a pocket thesaurus and his worldly school chum Chips can teach him .

Ready or not however Oliver is about to get a crash course His awkwardly torrid and tender relationship with Jordana is hurtling at the speed of teenage passion toward the inevitable magic moment and whatever lies beyond And his boy detective exploits have set him on a collision course with the New Age old flame who s resurfaced in his mother s life to lead her into temptation with lessons in surfing self defense and maybe seduction Struggling to buoy his parents wedded bliss deep six his own virginity and sound the depths of heartache happiness and the business of being human what s a lad to do Poised precariously on the cusp of innocence and experience yesterday s daydreams and tomorrow s decisions Oliver Tate aims to damn the torpedoes and take the plunge
