The girl who teaches in his department, the girl he dated in college, and that new girl who works at Clarke's sister school--all possibilities, but all with their own uniquely humorous frustrations. Also frustrating are Justin's problematic family and the rambunctious students who draw on too much of his time for all the wrong reasons. Something had better go rights for Justin soon, otherwise the bizarre and embarrassing misadventures that seem to plague his life are going to get the better of him. In this funny and heartfelt coming-of-age novel, Justin takes his lumps one after another on his way to discovering who he is and the true meaning of love.

When a mysterious man breaks into Daphna's small New York apartment, Daphna discovers that her mother's disappearance wasn't a random accident. Her mother knew something—and now somebody is after Daphna. What starts out as a simple fact-finding trip to the basement with her friends spirals into an international expedition.
