It?s 1991, and John ?Spud? Milton?s journey to manhood is still creeping along at a snail?s pace. Nearly fifteen, Spud?s starting his second year at boarding school and?to his utter mortification?he?s still a spud!
To make things worse, his dorm mates, the legendary Crazy Eight, have an unusual new member (Roger the cat), and his house is home to a new batch of unruly first years. Spud is soon plagued with women trouble, coerced into expulsion-worthy adventures, and frustrated to find his dreams of fame in tatters after landing the part of the Dove of Peace in a disastrous production of Noah?s Ark.
Join Spud as he takes another tentative step forward while all around him the madness continues. . . .
