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.


A modern-day homage to Puberty Blues.
