If you are looking for a fun read that will make you laugh, then DUSTIN GRUBBS: ONE-MAN SHOW by John J. Bonk is an act you shouldn't miss.

Dustin is a sixth grade thespian (actor) who has comedy and a thirst for performing in his blood. But don't tell his mom, since she says his dad's dream of being on stage is what caused the divorce nearly three years ago. One night he left for a gig, and Dustin hasn't heard from him since.

Dustin is not only the director of the school play, but has also landed the lead role. Performance day arrives and everything that can go wrong does, including major damage to the school's baby grand piano. The principal is holding Dustin and his favorite teacher, Miss Honeywell, responsible for finding a way to raise funds to repair the damage.

When Jeremy Jason Wilder, a famous teen actor, moves to his school, casting him in a small part seems to be the perfect solution to their financial dilemma. They could charge for the play and Dustin would have his moment in the spotlight performing to a full house. But Jeremy has his own secret that could stop the show. His arrival sets events in motion that could even cost Dustin his best friend, Wally.

John J. Bonk's amazing wit drives this book, from naming characters Pepper and LMNOP, to referring to ice water as "Adam's Ale, extra hale." Mr. Bonk creates the most amazing scenarios. This is a feel-good book that will have you laughing even after the last page is turned.
