Hannah-faye Junos | 1 comments I remember the book being fairly short, has a red cover.

It's a comedy about a boy whose poor family drives an embarrassingly large car that runs off biodiesel. They literally fill up at McDonalds when he's on a first date. He rides a really crappy bike and is chased by random people on it. I think he works in a video store. It turns out his family is actually loaded because his dad sold the rights to the biodiesel formula, but they wanted to stay humble so they put the money away. He gets drunk one night and his dad found him singing beatles all night on their lawn. His best friend and him end up taking the bio diesel car on a road trip.

such a funny and good book! Please help :)
