In Ginger Kid: Mostly True Tales from a Former Nerd, popular comedian Steve Hofstetter grapples with life after seventh grade . . . when his world fell apart.

Formatted as a series of personal essays, Steve Hofstetter walks his readers through awkward early dating, family turbulence, and the revenge of the bullied nerds. This YA nonfiction is sure to be the beloved next volume for the first generation of Wimpy Kid fans who are all grown up and ready for a new misfit hero.

“Good advice offered with a light but realistic touch make this a strong collection addition that will inspire teen readers to reach for challenges and friends beyond school walls. His journey holds much wisdom for adults, too, especially for those working with young people.” —VOYA magazine

“While [Hofstetter] is living a life of fame, travel, and financial success that many kids no doubt dream of, his origin story is a humble one; indeed, it is the sheer ordinariness of his experiences that will likely prove to be their most inspiring aspect.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
