This Just In… Handbook of Nothin’ by N. K. Wright

The year is 1972. Against the stormy backdrop of a nuclear arms race, Watergate break-ins, the Vietnam war, and indescribable acts of terror, a teenage boy lives out his simple, rural life. But despite his seemingly tranquil farm life, “Nothin’ Right” -- as he’s known to many of his seventh-grade classmates --faces trouble on numerous fronts and against several adversaries.

Can a resourceful farm boy solve his own epic problems when the often-violent world around him is on the verge of self-destruction? Handbook of Nothin’ is a 1972 snapshot of rural western America as told through the experiences of a 13-year-old junior high boy and the scrawled pencil drawings in his school notebook. It is written for middle-grade readers, but is fun for older groups as well, including anyone who lived in the 1970s.
