ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NOT
New York : Arthur A. Levine Books, 2005
year old Steven canít stop thinking about Mr. Bowman, his handsome, athletic
teacher, Steven loves to square dance, and he keeps copies of International
Male, a menís underwear catalog, underneath his bed. But, he says
he is absolutely, positively not . . .
In order to prove that he is absolutely, positively not, he starts doing the following manly activities: hanging out with the hockey jocks at lunch, trying to imitate them by belching loudly and doing other obnoxious things; going on as many dates as possible with lots of girls and even tying to kiss one; and covering his Superman poster with girls in bikinis and lingerie. He even tries this aversion therapy he read about in an old book where every time you have thoughts you want to change, you snap your wrist with a rubber band.
So now is he absolutely, positively not . . . ? (Davinna Artibey, Denver Center for International Studies, DPS, CO)
