From the author of How to Rescue a Dead Princess comes Out of Whack, an outrageous comedy about friendship, love, following your dreams, and other really scary stuff. Seth Trexler has two goals in life: to find success with his off-the-wall sketch comedy troupe, and to win the girl of his dreams.

With his best friend Travis at his side, Seth struggles to overcome his fears (along with the 2,873 other roadblocks in the path to success) in this hilariously demented yet heartfelt tale. But don't read it for the laughs. And don't read it for the heartfelt parts.

There was no doubt, however, that both of them were immensely talented. This was going to work. Laura was determined to not let our being officially boyfriend and girlfriend interfere with her duties as a student and a comedy troupe member. I swear, she spent more time studying and doing homework than I spent exhaling. When she wasn’t
attending classes or doing other school stuff, she was either sleeping, rehearsing, or eating. I hadn’t been invited to join her in the process of sleeping, and while rehearsing we were all business—not so much as a one-lipped peck on the cheek. But we ate most of our meals together, and we did reserve short blocks of time for testing the resistance of our mouths to high-powered suction. It was a good thing I didn’t have any lines to remember, because they would have come out “I Laura am Laura

We need skits!” * * * [ The stage is now serving as Jennifer’s apartment. She’s applying some makeup as the doorbell rings. She hurries over to the door and answers. ] CHARLES: Hi. You must be Jennifer. [ He’s tall, dark, and handsome, just like that massively studly actor who plays him, Travis Darrow. His clothes are nicely tailored and fit all the current
“Okay, definitely,” said Laura without conviction. “Seth, I just want you to know that I lov...that I want you to be happy.” She leaned over the table and gave me a gentle kiss on the lips. “Do you need me to drive you to the airport?” “Yeah, that’d be nice.” “Let me know when your plane is leaving and all that.” She closed the lid to the pizza box and brushed off her shirt. “I need to get going.” “Where do you have to go? I thought we could spend the afternoon together.” “I would, but I have
