MFOB FEATURED BOOK: Character, Driven

With only one year left of high school, Cliff Sparks is desperate to find a girlfriend. He’s never had much luck with girls, so when he falls for Jillian all he can do is worship her from afar. At the same time, Cliff has to figure out what to do with the rest of his life, since he’s pretty sure his unemployed father plans to kick him out of the house the minute he turns 18. Time is running out. Cliff is at the edge, on the verge, dangling―and holding on for dear life.
