2008) A novel by Chris Woodworth. Eddie McCall is a good kid. He does his homework, picks up around the house, and cooks dinner for his single mom when she has to work late at a Chicago hotel. Then Eddie's best friend, Whip, shows him a printout from the Internet- a picture of an honest-to-gosh naked woman-and suddenly Eddie can't seem to think about anything else.

Woodworth leavens her simply written story with well-drawn characters and quiet wisdom, making this a good choice for discussion groups. Parents, too, might learn from Eddie's single mother and her determination to assert parental control over her son's use of the Internet. Looking for a father figure, Eddie doesn’t expect much from Uncle Peavey, who has never even been on a date and still sleeps in a bunk bed.

Eddie McCall is a good kid.

Woodworth perfectly captures an eighth-grade boy on the cusp of adolescence, struggling with his identity as he learns about himself, his family, and what is really important in relationships. -School Library Journal. Woodworth leavens her simply written story with well-drawn characters and quiet wisdom, making this a good choice for discussion groups. CHRIS WOODWORTH's debut novel, When Ratboy Lived Next Door, was hailed by School Library Journal as "an outstanding offering from a first-time author. Her second novel, Georgie's Moon, was selected a Best Book of Indiana-Children's Literature.

I thought this book had a good plot, but didn't have a big climax to keep me reading. It taught a lesson on how you should be careful on the internet, but I didn't think it had much pizzaz to it. nblibgirlGo to nblibgirl's profile.

Eddie McCall is a good kid. He does his homework, picks up around the house, and cooks dinner for his single mom when she has to work late at a Chicago hotel. Then Eddie’s best friend, Whip, shows him a printout from the Internet— a picture of an honest-to-gosh naked woman—and suddenly Eddie can’t seem to think about anything else. He knows his mom will be upset if she sees the sites he’s visiting. Still, he doesn’t expect her to ship him off to her hometown of Sheldon, Indiana, to live with his great-uncle Peavey for an entire month. Peavey isn’t exactly the father figure thirteen-year-old Eddie’s been looking for. He spits tobacco juice into a can, calls a toilet a “commode,” and certainly doesn’t own a computer.

As it turns out, however, both Peavey McCall and Sheldon, Indiana, hold some very surprising secrets . . .

The author captures two worlds in this tender and funny look at a boy learning what it really means to be a man.

This is a great book for middle-school aged kids. Eddie and his friend Whip are starting to feel curious about girls -- those creatures they swore just last year to stay away from forever -- and the internet supplies some quick satisfaction to their curiosity. But when Eddie's Mom uncovers the sites they've been searching, Eddie is sent off to an uncle he barely knows to spend his school break in a one-horse town.

What Eddie learns about himself, about girls, about appearances and attraction and romance, and about why his mother protects him so fiercely, will change him forever. Not only does Eddie change but everyone else around him does too; they've all started to see events -- and people -- in a new light, and in the end, lessons about the grass being greener, appearances being deceiving, and second chances meaning everything are wonderfully brought home.

Wow, I cannot believe I'm the first to review this book, somebody needs to get the word out about what a great writer Chris Woodworth is. I cannot wait to see her next work. Double Click is both entertaining and educational. I chose the book because I have a 13-year-old son who is kind of going through some of the same issues her main character is facing. It was not only a good tool to help teach him through this phase, but turned out to be something that he, I, and my 15-year-old daughter all really enjoyed. We're hoping these characters are going to come back in a future book facing some new challenges!
