it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adults
Read in February, 2011

This book was absolutely, positively the funniest book I have read this year. Robert Nifkin is a modern Holden Caulfield: i.e. witty, resourceful, not so self-absorbed. Robert goes from being a greasy, clueless new kid in a gigantic school district (thus, he is hardly acknowledged and can easily skip out of class) to a totally cool, artsy freak. If you have a teen who needs some inspiration, or if you need a quick and dirty book that will give you a cathartic humor experience (code for: I laughed so hard I almost wet myself..), check this out.
