There's not much I can say that will do this story justice. Suffice it say that is an excellent companion piece to "Wednesday Wars" which I thoroughly enjoyed. Yet, While "Wednesday Wars" centers around adorable Holling Hoodhood, who, sure has some crap he has to deal with (namely: shitty dad), "Okay for Now"'s Doug has a whole plethora (thank you Kaitlyn Warren for your high school obsession with that word) of crap to deal with.Again, we have the terrible father (I think we may have daddy issues, Mr. Schmidt?), but this time it is in the form of someone truly menacing and pretty much diabolical. There are course the whole host of other tribulations that Doug faces, but I wouldn't want to give them away.Thankfully we also have wonderful teachers and mentors from some unlikely places and a cute little spitfire of a girl named Lil Spicer (pretty sure that's her rap name?) for a little romance.
