The plot reminds you of an 80s sitcom even, with all the loose ends tied up nicely and conveniently for this feel-good read.
You can even play the game they are making in the book on the author's website!
“But then Playboy published photographs of 'Wheel of Fortune' hostess Vanna White, I fell head over heels, and everything started to change.”
Pretty much an understatement for computer geek Billy, as the trio concocted various plots to snag a copy of the magazine. As expected and anticipated hijinks ensue, and Rekulak takes you on a journey with the boys that is about friendship, learning responsibility, dedication to achieving a lofty and satisfying goal, and so much more.
This is a classic coming-of-age tale with a twist. If you want a quick read, are a child of the 80s and want to take a trip down memory lane with musical mentions, product placement, and recall the very infancy of computers (dot matrix anyone?), this novel is for you. If Goodreads would allow, this selection would receive 3.75 stars so I rounded up.
For anyone who enjoys wordplay, puzzles, or has typed a line of code ... or for anyone who needs a touching mix of absurdity and sometimes tears, this book is a definite must read. The layering of subtext and stories within the overlying plotline also makes it a wonderful re-read, as more of Mr. Rekulak's elegant writing brings awesome detail to the novel, and the concept as a whole.
