The Ordinary White Boy - Brock Clarke Irony is alive and well in upstate New York. This is an amusing and entertaining tale that comes off sounding like the wise-ass little brother of Jernigan by David Gates. Lamar Kerry Jr. does not know pain, and even goes as far as to get himself beaten up, because he feels that he deserves it. He is an "ordinary white boy", who is not happy with his ordinariness. By the end he's more comfortable with being ordinary, but he has learned a few things along the way, like humility and the value of hard work...maybe.
