Zit monster.

Puberty Werewolf.

Potty Boy.

Doo Doo Rules!

I’m Duane. Duane Homer Leech. Don’t ask.

I’m 12. And one week. What I want to know is, where is this whole puberty thing going? So far it’s just something put on earth to destroy me.

And I don’t have a clue what’s coming next.

Praise For The Amazing Life of Birds: The Twenty-Day Puberty Journal of Duane Homer Leech

“Paulsen’s perceptive, funny look at the life of 12-year-old Duane is at once indisputably real.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred

“Paulsen has created a humorous Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret for boys. Every male on either side of puberty will see themselves in Duane.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Paulsen’s writing is beautiful, and it turns Duey’s puberty journal into a description of a beautiful sunrise of its own.”—VOYA
