Grade 8–10—Will Carter is about to start high school and worries about finding his place and making his mark, especially when it come to girls. Carter isn't exactly smooth, he's got ADD and tends to stutter in moments of duress (expecially when fixated with boobs, tits, and belly buttons), but he has a great group of friends, dogged determination, and a wise sister who'll help him stumble through his freshman year, find his first love, face down the school bully, and learn who he really is. Crawford's debut is hysterical from start to finish. Readers will find themselves muffling uncontrollable laughter as they rush to find out what clumsy escapade Carter will plunge himself into next. Few writers have captured the real-life awkwardness of puberty with such comedic candor. Carter might finally get it (or maybe not), but it's readers who really feel lucky.—Terri Clark, Smokey Hill Library, Centennial, CO

Crawford expertly channels his inner 14-year-old for this pitch-perfect comedy about girls, football, girls, swimming, girls, drama club, and girls. Freshman Will Carter is googly-eyed over everything about high school (did we mention the girls?), and his ADD just makes it worse—no matter what’s going on, it only takes seconds for his imagination to devolve into fantasies about G-strings, exposed navels, and “tig ol’ biddies.” His toughest challenges quickly reveal themselves: gynormous athletes wanting to flatten him, friends intent on humiliating him, and Abby, the no-longer-fat drill-team hottie who seems to get a real charge out of slapping him in public. There’s barely a plot to speak of, and Crawford relies heavily on stock social situations. But his stream-of-consciousness, first-person narrative flails around in an excellent imitation of a freshman, complete with volume changes, dumb jokes, and sudden flashes of elation and despair. Occasionally poignant and frequently hilarious, this will amuse scads of male readers. Grades 7-10. --Daniel KrausSee all Editorial Reviews

Carter reminds me more of seventh and eight grade but that was back in the dark ages. We bought Guys And Dolls because of this book. Carter is a lot more into G & D than we are. Read morePublished 8 months ago by D. Reginald Endsley
