Review: This stand-along sequel to Twerp finds Julian Twerski in 1970 New York City among his mostly Jewish friends, grappling with the unfairness of life. Unwittingly at odds with his principal first over a bullying incident and then a false accusation of vandalism, he now must write a 200-word essay about good citizenship in lieu of suspension from school. One of his close friends has cancer, he secretly likes Beverly (but does she like him?) and he must prepare for his bar mitzvah. Coming of age involves more challenges than he anticipated.
