"In a competition for the best senior prank, a group of boys find themselves with more than notoriety at stake. "
Jon Ryan and his friends want to end their senior year in style, by having a competition to pull off the most popular senior prank. With one prank each night and all the friends committed to help each other without too much question, the week’s escapades quickly spiral beyond any of their predictions. Throw in alcohol and drug lowered inhibitions and an unrelated gangland operation for the teenagers to stumble into and you’ve got the perfect storm for a part comedy of errors, part coming-of-age tale that defies belief.
The chaos and capers in For What It's Worth make for entertaining reading that leaves you wondering what the boys’ next prank will be, and how it could go wrong. Written in a diary style but by Jon Ryan years later, the reflective tone is quite reassuring for when the group find themselves in ever more dangerous situations. This book is filled with youthful stupidity, a hopeful sense of the future beyond high school to reminisce over and enough unpredictability to keep you guessing what’s going to come next. Readers looking for something unexpected and madcap will enjoy this surprising tale.
