We Should Hang Out Sometime: Embarrassingly, a True Story

We rated this book:


Josh had cancer and lost one leg above the hip when he was nine. His parents are deeply religious and perhaps a wee bit overprotective as well. Consequently, Josh is home schooled until he is able to convince his reluctant parents to let him attend public school his freshman year. He has no luck finding his first kiss at church outings and is looking forward to high school where he can meet more girls. And meet them he does, one after another, but that elusive first kiss just keeps on eluding him. By the time Josh is twenty-five, he still hasn’t had a real girlfriend except for one relationship that lasted less than a day, so he decides he needs to find out what the problem is and endeavors to interview all the girls in his life.

This is a memoir and readers are asked to believe it is true and accurate, as embarrassing as it is for Josh to admit to being so totally clueless. It’s hard to believe someone who has such a serious handicap can find such a humorous view of his life story. This book is laugh-out-loud funny with stories any can relate to.
