Knots in My Yo-Yo String: The Autobiography of a Kid by Jerry Spinelli

A master of those embarrassing, gloppy, painful, and suddenly wonderful
things that happen on the razors edge between childhood and full-fledged
adolescence (The Washington Post), Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli has penned
his early autobiography with all the warmth, humor, and drama of his
best-selling fiction. From first memories through high school, including first
kiss, first punch, first trip to the principals office, and first humiliating
sports experience, this is not merely an account of a highly unusual childhood.
Rather, like Spinellis fiction, its appeal lies in the accessibility and
universality of his life. Entertaining and fast-paced, this is a highly
readable memoir-- a must-have for Spinelli fans of all ages.

They fought back" ; and to feel the "clack" of colliding teeth during his first kiss with Kathy Heller in a game of Truth or Consequences.
