Synopsis

Measuring Up by G.J. Stroud

UNTIL RECENTLY, JONAH'S LIFE HAS BEEN WONDERFULLY SIMPLE- SCHOOL, PARTYING AND SURFING WITH HIS MATES. IT'S BEEN UNCOMPLICATED - LIKE RIDING THE PERFECT WAVE. BUT THAT'S ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE. With the pressure of year 12 looming, Jonah's mission to have sex before his eighteenth birthday is not going well. Jonah's lack of self-confidence is fuelling his fear that he's destined to live in the shadow of his legendary older brother, Link. And just when he thinks that things couldn't get any more complicated his brother drops a bombshell on his unsuspecting family. But life has a funny way of sorting out the big issues from the small. And Jonah discovers that sometimes the answers you're looking for are right in front of you ...Measuring Up is a fresh and funny story of friendship, surf and raging hormones.
