About this item
Love, death, sex, homework—it's all part of the same problem when you're sixteen.
Tony Vivamano steps out of the shower—steaming hot naked—and tries to eat a roast beef sandwich while he shaves and admires his muscles. It's clear to him that he is a millionaire in biological gold and he should be prepared to share his riches. "I am a hedonist," he tells the mirror practicing a sophomore vocabulary word. The problem is, Tony's best friend Patrick Cantwell is too busy trying to write a paper on wisdom on a Friday night to go out looking for girls. With a little coaxing, Patrick and Tony are racing off in The Love Machine, Tony's mother's station wagon, and the trouble soon begins. Most Improved Sophomore takes the reader on a hilarious ride through the world of 1970s high school partying, soul searching and the one thing all sophomore boys want: True Love. A comic novel loaded with laughs, but also a serious exploration about what it means to go all the way in love and friendship.
