Format: Hardcover
Girard introduces us to Jimmy, who is the laughingstock of his school thanks to a friend who posted a video of `Disco Jimmy' dancing on YouTube. Other than becoming an internet meme, Jimmy's other problems are pretty standard for a boy his age - girls, homework, and his family. When his uncle comes to him with a video of what he believes to be Big Foot that he shot on his cell phone, Jimmy is once again brought into the internet spotlight, and the scrutiny of his classmates. Girard's drawing style brings out the emotion in his character's witty and subtle dialogue to create a well-rounded cast. Big Foot is a great study about how fast you can make or break friendships at the most awkward time of your life.

Format: Hardcover
Jimmy’s rotten friend Simon uploads a video he secretly took of Jimmy dancing and it quickly goes viral - suddenly everyone knows who “Disco Jimmy” is and it’s ruining poor Jim’s life! Then his uncle shoots some footage of what he insists is Bigfoot and the media swoops in to focus on the family - as if the teasing at high school wasn’t bad enough, poor Jimmy’s gotten yet more unwanted attention!

Bigfoot is Pascal Girard’s second book back when he was still focused on fiction, so it’s understandable that its not nearly as accomplished as his later works, Reunion and Petty Theft, both memoirs. It’s also unfortunately a much less engrossing read.

On the one hand Girard does fine in portraying small town life where everyone knows everyone’s business, as well as the frustrations and awkwardness of being a high school kid. There’s also a slight variation on the coming of age story because of Youtube - this generation has to deal with the fact that everyone in the world could watch their mistakes on the internet rather than kids pre-Youtube, so the embarrassment factor is magnified hugely.

I also thought Jimmy and Simon’s relationship was convincing - Simon’s the happy-go-lucky jerk who treats Jimmy poorly until Jimmy stands up for himself and cuts his “friend” loose. I think a lot of young friendships are like this so many people are able to relate - I know I could!

On the other hand - and I know this is a very shallow critique - none of that interested me at all. Though I guess it’s not that shallow as it’s the author’s job to make the reader care about his characters/story and I wasn’t into either.

I really wasn’t sure what Girard was going for with the Bigfoot angle.
