Reprint. Originally published: Toronto: Tundra, 2012.

Thirteen-year-old wrestling fanatic Henry used to have a normal life.

Now, his therapist wants him to keep a journal so he can express his feelings about what happened.

Henry has moved with his dad to a new city, where nobody knows their name.

He lives off a diet of pizza, whilst hiding from the comically overbearing neighbours and avoiding being an obvious target for bullies at his new school.

But then he meets Farley and Alberta, social misfits who refuse to let him be alone. And bit by bit, the past begins to come out. Heartbreaking, surprising and laugh-out-loud funny, The Reluctant Journal of Henry K Larsen is about the things that remain after your life has fallen to pieces.
