Castration Celebration by Jake Wizner

This book is hilarious!

Did you know that in imperial china, eunuchs had their testicles, penis and scrotum removed?

Olivia does. She's done the research--after walking in on her dad fooling around with one of his grad students. On her ay to an arts summer camp at Yale University, she's decided to write a musial called Castration Celebration.

Max, on the other hand, is a big fan of the penis--intact. As an actor, he always has the right line, especially for the ladies. He's going to camp to hone his skills, both acting and otherwise. And when Olivia and Max meet...oh, the drama! Olivia and Max have their roles down pat. Before camp is over, they'll preform Olivia's musical onstage and in real life--though the ending may turn out different than either expects.

People who are easily offended shoulodn't read this book.
I read it straight through, and laughed most of the way. The hilarity of it was refreshing and came easily, making this book a quick read.
I think, that, if you don't get offended easily, and you like a good laugh. This book is for you.
