Fans of Andrew Smith and Matt de la Pena will be captivated by this summer-in-the-life of a teenage guy growing up in a trailer park in Eugene, Oregon.   Travis plans to spend the summer as follows:    • Working on his basketball game with his friend, Creature.    • Reading excerpts from Creature's novel-in-progress: The Pervert's Guide to Russian Princesses.    • Canoeing around the lake, trying to catch a glimpse of the beautiful girl who just moved in.    • Not getting into trouble, not going back to juvie . . .    • Searching the homeless camps for his mother, with a jar full of cash to help her get back on her feet. From a powerful new voice in YA literature comes an unforgettable account of growing up, making mistakes, and growing out of the shadow of drug abuse. "So real it hurts."—David Arnold, author of Mosquitoland
