The Heroic Life of Al Capsella

(1989)
(A book in the Al Capsella series)
A novel by

 
Having parents at all is embarrassing enough, but what if your parents are the weirdest people on the planet? Poor Al Capsella! His efforts to appear "normal" to the outside world are thwarted at every turn by his eccentric parents. Why can't they trim the lawn like all of the other families in the neighborhood? Why must his mother always wear that biker outfit? Why does his bookish father harass Al's teachers for their teaching plans? If you liked The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4, Al Capsella's razor-sharp wit is sure to tickle your funny bone. Author J. Clarke takes a common teenage angst ("oh my god, my parents are so strange!") and exaggerates it ever so slightly to create a delightful romp inside the mind of a stressed-out 14-year-old.
