Josh has not had the best luck with girls, in fact, his only girlfriend was in the 8th grade. It lasted less than a day. This is not for lack of trying. So Josh goes back to all the girls he tried to date to find out what went wrong.
This book is full of hilarious stories that brings me back to the most awkward years of my life. Dating can be tough, but Josh seems to struggle a bit more than others. As a result of a major illness, he is left with one foot, and has a prosthesis for the second. I loved the way he shamelessly talked about all of the silly mishaps, some having to do with his prosthesis, and some just having to do with his shy personality. I think it takes a brave person to go back many years to learn about your mistakes, but I think there is a lot to be learned from an act like that. Josh writes with humor, and unfaltering honesty, and it make this an easy story to follow. In a way it kind of seemed like the real life version of An Abundance of Katherines. I thoroughly enjoyed this one! ***SPOILER ALERT*** Worry not folks, he got married last year! He is also hugely successful, so good things…those who wait. Yes.
