A very Nick Hornby-ish Hornby book (if you've read a bunch of him, you'll know what I mean). Even though it's a YA novel, there's no major difference between any of the other books. It's got the slightly doofy-but-charming male lead, the overtaxed mom, and the relationship that fizzles but remains on decent terms. Hand it to your teenager to convince him or her to use contraception every time. Also, my boys enjoy this book because he holds conversations with his Tony Hawk poster. If you've got skaters, this would be a good pick.
