Geordie likes baseball, crunching carrots, playing the trumpet in the school band and anything to do with water. Not quite telling the truth earns: "You're grounded!" Over the year that follows, the world's truths turn out to be more interesting than Geordie ever imagined. Some discoveries are comic, some are exciting, some upsetting, some sad. And some are puzzling. Consisting of word puzzles, a series of poems and a diary, this book will delight young readers and teenagers alike.
