About Pool Boy
Fifteen-year-old Brett Gerson is the kind of kid you love to hate. He’s smug, arrogant, rude, and filthy rich. When his dad is jailed for insider trading, his family loses everything and Brett has to face life without the mansion, the Mercedes, and his beloved $5,000 stereo. But his attitude begins to change when he’s forced to take a summer job assisting Alfie Moore, the seventy-year old guy who used to clean his swimming pool . . .
Told in the first person and set in a fictional California town, POOL BOY marks the debut of a gifted young writer, Michael Simmons, and of one of the most engaging and infuriating anti-heroes since Holden Caulfield.
