Brett Gerson is fifteen and loaded. Until his dad is busted for owing the government ten million dollars. The injustice is that Brett has to pay for the fact that his dad has blown it ...with his five-grand stereo and his huge allowance. Now he, his mom and his sister have been kicked out of their plush Californian mansion and are living with Brett's crazy aunt in some loser neighbourhood where the only pools are the inflatable kind. For the first summer ever, Brett's going to have to get a job. POOL BOY marks the debut of a gifted young writer, Michael Simmons, and one of the most engaging and infuriating anti-heroes since Holden Caulfield.
