Fiction. Handsome, fashion-conscious high-school senior Liam is Mr. Popularity--but in his angry and controlling father's eyes, all he can do is screw up. Kicked out of his dad's house after one too many transgressions, Liam (who is, by the way, straight) goes to live with his gay, cross-dressing "Aunt Pete" in an upstate New York trailer park. As he gets to know Pete and his glam-rock band buddies, Liam tries to play down his natural coolness at his new school in an attempt to please his dad. But, of course, things don't go as planned. Hilarious and insightful, King of the Screwups is one righteous read.
