plot problem/conflict The problem is Greg does not want to grow too fast. He is afraid of growing pimples and hair like normal teenagers. He is afraid of having to face (the ugly truth.)
plot resolution He does not grow all the things most people do,so he is okay. He just has to face the facts that he is getting older. He will most likely grow them in a couple years.
My opinion I thought it was funny, because everything he does always ends up going terribly wrong. It is also funny because he tries to do everything to talk with “holly”,his crush, but he always ends up embarrassing himself in front of her.
