One Seriously Messed-Up Weekend in the Otherwise Un-Messed-Up Life of Jack Samsonite by Tom Clempson

Jack Samsonite's Foolish Plan for Being Amazing at Everything (including getting a life, getting into Film School, and getting into a girl's knickers) 1.Make an amazing(ly bad) short film about zombies ...or maybe superheroes ...or just three idiot friends. It has to be deep and meaningful and (most importantly) has to have a scene where I kiss a girl on the mouth. 2.Write the world's best university application ever! (Or at least one that doesn't make me seem like a nob). 3.Don't get expelled trying to complete 1 & 2. It can't possibly fail ...right?
