Crap Archivist Alan Scherstuhl asked earlier today if 1983's Am I Normal? is crap. Scherstuhl was perplexed because Am I Normal? appears to be "well-intentioned" but often comes with bizarre explanations for puberty.

One of the city's best bloggers, JJS in KCK, came through with a concise answer.

"Not crap" for its reassuring tone and honest (if amateur) explanations. "Crap" for its insistence on talking to one's peers as if puberty were as casual a topic as the shop teacher's nose hair."
As always, the truth is somewhere in the middle.
