Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Payne's self-published Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp became an underground sensation and garnered a youthful cult following for hero Nick Twisp, a linguistically precocious 14-year-old diarist. Later published by Doubleday, it has since sold more than 25,000 copies and is in development as a miniseries by MTV. In his latest adventure, Twisp, now independently wealthy as a result of his invention, the hugely successful "Wart Watch," is still disguised as Carlotta Ulansky, living in splendor with his maid, Mrs. Ferguson, and her son, Dwayne, and is once again attending high school in Ukiah, Calif. The deception is necessary because he is being pursued by the FBI for inadvertently burning down half of Berkeley. His girlfriend, the ever-luscious Sheeni Saunders, knows Carlotta's true identity and is accommodating her/his overactive hormones once or twice a week. The saga of teen angst and rebellion unfolds as before in Nick's first-person journal entries. Ever jealous of Sheeni's past flame, Trent Preston, Nick/Carlotta persuades Trent to elope with his present girlfriend, Apurva, to Mississippi, where 16-year-olds are allowed to marry. But Nick's triumph is short-lived. The FBI tracks him down, and he must once again skip town, ending up in Mexico, where he has plastic surgery and changes his identity. Going by the name of Rick S. Hunter, Nick runs into Sheeni in Baja, has an affair with her as Rick and discovers that she's pregnant with his baby. As in the previous volume, the plot becomes increasingly convoluted, but unlike its predecessor, this installment never catches fire. Nick's voice, although witty, seems less 14 than 40. Still, fans of the previous book will want to read this one, and cross-promotion with Payne's Frisco Pigeon Mambo (reviewed above) will help both titles.

From Booklist

In this sequel to the 1993 cult favorite Youth in Revolt , 14-year-old Nick Twisp still creates criminal havoc by accident, still seeks physical union with his love, Sheeni Saunders, and still has to live as a girl to avoid the police. But now, Nick has decided that he must marry Sheeni in order to ensure that she is with him forever. In pursuit of this goal, he almost blows his fortune, nearly cripples the nation with a computer virus, shoots his future father-in-law, and undergoes radical plastic surgery to resemble French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo. This hilarious sequel will delight readers with its cast of eccentric teenagers, as will Nick's avaricious appetite for adjectives. Unfortunately, those who haven't read the first book will find it difficult to follow the plot, even with Payne's brief back story, and even fans of Youth in Revolt will tire of Nick's sophomoric observations about love. Although the satisfying conclusion to this novel will leave Payne's audience hoping for further Twispian tales, it may be time for Nick to grow up--at least a bit. John Green
