Staff Reviews

Norris Kaplan is snarky, witty and way too smart for his own good. A Black French Canadian, he quickly learned from American sitcoms that fitting in at his new high school in Austin, Texas might not go over well. Sweating more than natural from the oppressive Texas heat, Norris finds himself stereotyping his classmates as a way to pass the time. Cheerleaders, Jocks, Loners, Nerds, and the ever-present Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Making friends is not on his to-do list and he just has to hold out until he can move back to Canada (FYI - his mother has NO intention of moving back to Canada).
