Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Debuting with this rambling, logorrheic, self-indulgent trilogy of comic novels collected in one volume, Payne covers six hectic months in the life of 14-year-old Oakland native Nick Twisp. Youth in Revolt , the first installment, chronicles Nick's transformation from a computer-hacking, book-reading teen into a rebel with a libidinous cause: the winning of Sheeni Saunders, a girl he meets while on vacation. Youth in Bondage finds Nick stuck in Sheeni's hometown of Ukiah, Calif. She has gone away to school in Santa Cruz (with her boyfriend), and Nick must live with his penny-pinching father, who treats him like an indentured servant. Nick relies increasingly on his tough alter ego, Francois Dillinger, creating a fantasy life that is the trilogy's main strength, far less tiresome than the forced humor that mars most of Nick's bizarre adventures. When the FBI turns up in Ukiah--they are on Nick's trail for a fire he accidentally set in downtown Berkeley--he flees to L.A. Youth in Exile eventually takes him back to Ukiah, disguised as a girl and re-enrolled at the local high school, where he fends off passes from undiscerning boys while plotting to get Sheeni back. The long-delayed resolution to this tedious effort fulfills every teen fantasy from great sex to independent wealth. Author tour.

From Library Journal

This is the story of a precocious 14-year-old who reveals his struggles with the life, love, and libido of adolescence through his excruciatingly long and detailed journal. Bored by his mind-numbing high school and bewildered by the escapades of his wacky, divorced parents, Nick and his pals turn their attentions to the mysterious pursuit of true love and the quest for loss of virginity. Hormones rule. Nick's journal entries read like a cross between Holden Caulfield and Doogie Howser, or The Wonder Years with a dash of Philip Roth. There are a few truly funny scenes as Nick strives to outwit archrival Trent for the love of the brainy and beautiful Sheeni. Payne obviously has a vivid and ribald recollection of adolescence, but his recounting is overlong and lacking in real direction. Maybe you had to have been there. Not recommended.
