For many college students, Spring Break means fun and sun in Florida. For Danny, a Yale junior, it means two weeks behind the wheel of the Roach Coach, his father's lunch truck, which plies the parking lots of office parks in central New Jersey.

But Danny can use the time behind the coffee urn to try and make sense of a love life that's gotten a little complicated. There's loyal and patient hometown honey Cindy and her recently dropped bombshell to contend with. And there's also lissome Polly back in New Haven--with her shifting moods, perfect thrift store dresses and inconvenient liaison with a dashing professor.

If girl problems aren't enough, there's the constant menace of the Lunch Monsters, a group of thugs who think Danny has planted the Roach Coach in their territory.

Joe College is Tom Perrotta's warmest and funniest fiction yet, a comic journey into the dark side of love, higher education and food service.

I don't know how I feel about this book. It had all the making of a great book. I really liked the beginning then I felt like it missed the mark. The story seemed to be all over the place. I was the story of a boy who was from New Jersey and went to school at Yale. The story begins and ends at Yale but the bulk of the story is in New Jersey during his spring break, while he helps his dad drive a lunch truck. There are so many story lines that are thrown together and don't really help the overall story. Not that I felt there was an overall story that had a beginning and an end.
