Having a few Growing Pains? Missing your pre-teen crush? Prepare to feel old. Kirk is pushing toward age 50 now. This little paperback is typical of the picture heavy teen idol biographies that were staples of book fairs. We have featured quite a few over the years. They are usually low quality paperbacks with pictures and only a brief biographical sketch. I think they are sometimes excellent for reluctant readers, but the shelf life of these items is short for any collection.
