My Favorite Girlfriend (Paperback)
If you enjoyed Bill Bryson's book, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, and Russell Baker's book, Growing up, you will thoroughly enjoy the hilarious, coming-of-age, romantic comedy, My Favorite Girlfriend, by Paul Sturm. This humorous and entertaining memoir details how a scrawny, funny-looking, audaciously witty kid leveraged his surprising athletic skills in basketball and his creative imagination in the classroom to become popular. The story is really a romantic comedy identifying the author's constant desire for a girlfriend, as early as kindergarten.
The story captures the uproarious twists and turns in the author's romantic relationships and his athletic pursuits, beginning in Park Ridge, New Jersey, as a youth, and then at The College of William and Mary. His comical pursuit of love, despite his less than impressive appearance, includes woeful failures with the opposite sex, but some wonderful times, too. After many exciting relationships, would he ever find the girl of his dreams?
