I'd give it 4.5 if I could.... I'm still working on that.

It was REALLY REALLY CUTE! I REALLY like Scott! He was so cute and nerdy, but in a great way! Just the kind of guy I would have gone for in high school... Of course, it would have been a super-secret crush, and he would never have suspected in a million years. But whatever. The guy w

I love to read YA literature about guys that are written by guys. I find it to be more entertaining, on the whole, than books about guys written by women. This book didn't disappoint in that regard.

The gimmick of chronicling the lessons learned in school was not too over the top so as to get annoying. Also, the author does a good job of making some surprising characters to be really interesting, and the romance resolution wasn't at all what I thought would have expected. It seems like it's going

Found my first read aloud for the school year! This book had me cracking up and then tearing up. Scott is a smart, funny, and caring freshman who describes his first year in a way that you can't stop reading. I think my 8th graders would thoroughly enjoy the story and there are even a few school related terms that I can incorporate while reading out loud! LOVE this book!

3.5 Stars

I find this book quite boring at first. its pretty dull in the beginning with nothing hugely interesting happened. But things start to pick up and i was surprised to find myself enjoying it.

i think the best part of this book is Scott himself. Hes a pretty cool and decent guy. And he loves book. He has this cool way of thinking and most of the time i love being in his mind (which I have to admit, is a rare occasion)

This one really engaged my son (a read aloud). I thought it was a bit hokey, but hey....I'm not a 14 year old freshman boy (Thank God!!)

This was a very light, fun & quick read and I loved it! I loved Scott's personality and his humor. Loved the writing.

Definitely glad I picked it up so randomly.

When I saw the cover and title, the only thing I wanted to do was to read the book. Now the only thing I want to do is warn other people not to read the book. David Lubar’s Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie successfully bored me to death with its magnificently dull plot. Firstly, the author’s style is horrendous. The main character, Scott Hudson, is an average kid with nothing special about him. Dedicated solely to depict Scott’s journey throughout freshmen year, this book is terrible. I personally de ...more

To be honest, I was't looking forward to this book... I don't even know why I put it on my to-read list. Even when i got it at the library I felt kind of dull. I didn't start reading it until 11 p.m. that night, but i didn't put it down until I was done O_O I finished passed 6 a.m.! I have NEVER read a book in one night before! I LOVED it. I think it was absolutely brilliant and so worth the sleep deprivation.
You know what I love? I love the feeling you get when you laugh. And i'm not talking ab
