  The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To by DC Pierson My rating: 3 of 5 stars Well, this is a first: blurbage that actually tells the truth! The "normal" part of the book (which is to say, the first two thirds) is spot on regarding the lives of teenage boys, particularly those that are too geeky to be jocks or belong to some other well-defined : Lazygal.   Author DC Pierson, pictured, was quick to respond to a student's online request for someone to 'completely cover' page novel The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep and Never Had To.
