12-year-old Billy loves food and Lost in Space. As the only son on a remote farm in New Zealand, he's forced into farm chores that aren't just abhorrent, but that leave him little time to indulge his theatrical bent. He gets by with the help of his tomboy cousin Lou and a rich fantasy life. The arrival of two outsiders -- the freaky, pimply Roy and the sexy David Cassidy look-alike Jamie -- changes everything. Billy is drawn to both Roy and Jamie, testing his friendships and loyalties in the process. Funny and engaging, this tale of a gay awakening resonates with anyone who endured an awkward adolescence. Billy struggles with his sexual identity, but also with his weight, in achingly familiar attempts to diet and camouflage his girth. Capturing the period when the adult world begins to impinge on the child's, the book narrates the agonies of early adolescence with wit and tenderness.
