This book has everything, it's compelling, engaging, nostalgic, forward-looking, and manages to be both genuinely funny and profoundly sad. Highly recommend if you're looking for an emotional heavy-hitter with all the nostalgia of a John Hughes movie and all the humor and modern sensibility of a young-adult novel written by a young-adult author.
I was fortunate enough to read an early draft of this book. Made me laugh, made me tear up, made me laugh AND tear up at the same time--really, what more can one ask for? The main character's voice is strong and likeable, his soul-searching about sex, love, and growing up are thoughtful and thought-provoking. A touching send-up to Ferris Bueller, updated and slightly more bittersweet. Recommended.
