I'm a little torn with this book.

I liked the pictures, even though they were pretty juvenile. Most of them were silly and tied in well with the story.
And the story was cute - a kind of love story, kind of down-on-his luck kind of kid - Dweebs trying to rise above all the torture & bullying of school and be so uncool they are cool..

But, I'm torn because....I can't tell who the target audience for this book is. It was pretty juvenile silly stories, but there was swearing (just a little, but it was there) and talk of Whiskey.
The pictures and story make me think I could hand it to almost 6th graders, but I don't think the swearing or the drinking references (the kids are joking, but....is this really what we want them joking about??) are appropriate for that age range.

And I think a middle school kid would be bored with the juvenile nature of the book. Maybe not....this was just my impression.
