On the day that the fattest, sweatiest man in Hong Kong kidnapped his parents, thirteen-year-old Boyd McCloyd found out he had a new job from an eight-foot tall yeti in a pinstripe suit. The job in question: Boyd was to continue to produce yearly editions of The Almanac of the Twisted and Weird (the world’s number one printed resource for the odd and unusual, macabre and profane, twisted and…weird). However, because Boyd had inherited this job from the venerable Confucius Ping, he also inherited Mr. Ping’s enemies, every one of which had made it their lifelong goal to destroy everything that Mr. Ping represented. This dastardly and treacherous group of werewolves, leprechauns, mutant swordfish, dwarf giants, and various other cadres of criminals includes the very man who had kidnapped Boyd’s parents: Mr. Fang.

What was it like to be a teenager in 1987? Donny Godwin will tell you.  If coming of age for you meant dealing with the feelings of resentment and betrayal stemming from Sammy Hagar’s replacement of David Lee Roth in Van Halen, then TJHS 1987 is your story.  If coming of age for you meant watching that one member of the opposite sex from afar and never making that move, even though you knew that person was the right one for you, then TJHS 1987 is your story. If you were not quite cool, but not quite a dork when you were thirteen years old and operated in a weird little world populated only by people with a minimal amount of social capital, then TJHS 1987 is your story. Randall P. Girdner takes you through the 7th grade, in all of its wonderful, horrible glory. TJHS 1987 is your story.
