Most teenagers are much smarter than Nick Hornby thinks. Or, at the very least, smarter than the ones he populates Slam with.

I've read -- and enjoyed -- at least five "adult" Hornby novels. And yes, we all know he sticks to the man-as-young-boy motif. But he really doesn't fare well with the young-boy-forced-to-be-a-man idea.

Slam felt like it insulted the very YA audience it was written to entertain.
