The Frequent Missteps of J.D. Buckles


J.D. Buckles is a struggling young writer who has spent the last seven months clumsily searching for his true love while working unsuccessfully to fulfill his late father's dream of getting onto The New York Times Best Sellers list. At the suggestion of his attractive longtime friend, Sue, J.D. temporarily shelves his novel and begins to write humorous poems based on his dating miscues and his altercations with Joe, his nemesis at the coffee shop where he works part-time.

Despite the poems' unconventional protagonist, J.D. soon finds they are a hit at the coffee shop open mic and help land him a date with Dawn, the most talented and beautiful singer ever to perform there. As Sue becomes jealous of this blossoming relationship and goes out with Joe in response, J.D. begins to wonder if his true love has been by his side all along. But is it too late? Has he lost Sue to his nemesis?

J.D. embarks on a brilliant, but risky plan to win her back, while also working to trick a publisher into signing him for his poems in a desperate attempt to become a best-selling author and fulfill his father's lifelong dream.
