Whacha Wanna Do? : Confessions Of A Mischievous Altar Boy
by Gary S. Edelen




Overview -
The clock ticks down to the very last minute of the very last day of seventh grade, and though it has to be the slowest clock in the entire state of Kentucky...the bell finally rings and Scott Stiles is free. Not only is there no more school, he doesn't even have to go to altar boy practice anymore

It's an early-1960s summer, Scott and his pals Ran, Mortie, Biscuit, and Moose have every day to themselves for the next three months...and they plan to make the most of it. What follows is a summer packed with joyful mischief, cleverly plotted pranks, and the blissful luxury of not having to do anything anyone else wants you to do. But that's not to say that Scott and his buddies have no goal...their hero, television star, The Tall Texan is coming to the State Fair, and they plan to move heaven and earth to get there to see him.

A hilarious look at how kids spent their summers in the days before play dates, day camp, and structured activities, Whacha Wanna Do? captures a world gone by that will be a revelation to younger readers and an affectionate look back for those who remember it....
