A charming and highly comic debut novel about learning to overcome obstacles.Thirteen-year-old Rits has been left in the lurch by his parents. His mother has entered an institution, and his father is traveling with his new girlfriend. Dumped with his couchpotato bachelor uncle, there is nothing for Rits to do but write in his diary, dream up films he can make with his video camera, and worry. He worries especially about how to keep his parents' whereabouts secret and how to diagnose his strange pains. Rits meets Rita, a girl his own age, who says she can help him make films, which leads to Rits getting a job as a wedding cameraman. He also worries about what will happen when his father comes home. Will Rits have to live with him and his new girlfriend? What happens if his mother hasn't finished "resting" in time? Written in diary form, this is a story about growing up, about overcoming emotional problems, and about coping with parental breakup.
