We can all recall times growing up when we had the urge to play hooky from school. Those days when we faked a cold or flu in an attempt to avoid an upcoming grammar test or the consequences for incomplete homework. We would cough and sputter and shiver in pleading our case but most often be ushered out the door by a seemingly uncaring mother. In Yours Truly, we are introduced to Alvin, a master of playing hooky, a ten year old boy who routinely faked illness and injury to skip school and whose efforts were substantiated in, although sympathetic, most often ridiculous notes from his seemingly caring mother. A collection of the original handwritten notes, preserved as the author’s memoirs, Yours Truly follows the exploits of little Alvin as he tiptoes around the school’s attendance officer throughout his grade five school year.
