I discovered Stupid Fast at a local Barnes & Noble about a month ago. I only had a little bit of time to read maybe five chapters (the chapters are fairly short) and that was just enough to get me totally hooked!
I mean really, could this book get any funnier? Felton Reinstein (and Geoff Herbach) have amazing senses of humor. I couldn’t stop laughing. Felton doesn’t think that he’s funny, but he doesn’t realize that he’s hilarious. He can also be a bit awkward, since he’s kind of a social outcast in his town, but it all changes in the summer! (Which is pretty much the course of the book.)
There’s a lot of problems going on in this novel, which only adds up to the angst you actually want to read about. It’s like It’s Kind of A Funny Story, if it wasn’t funny, it would be depressing! There are problems with his friends, his family, and the “honkies” and “townies”.
Fortunately, there are good things that happen in this book! Like meeting Aleah, having a major growth spurt (seriously, the dude is like two hundred pounds) and getting to be on the football team, just to name a few.
Stupid Fast is a great, quick summer read that won’t disappoint! I think this book is perfect for all teens, whether or not you’re a sports fan!
