If you have read all the Wimpy Kid books by Jeff Kinney [including the last one The Long Haul] then this is the perfect book for you.
It is a story about a smart guy called Jack Sprigley waiting for signs of puberty to kick in, who unwisely, and not so smartly decides to try and fake it.
“ So far, Jack had come up with three possible reasons for his freakish lack of progress in the man-parts department:
1. His body was building up to a massive growth spurt. At some point soon he’d turn into an Incredible Hulk of puberty and sprout a pair of really enormous testicles.
2. It was a punishment from the gods for becoming semi-famous in Grade 6
3. There’d been a mix-up at the hospital and he was actually a girl.”
