Reviews

Gr 9 Up-Tired of his image as a geek and being ignored at school, Tyler's graffiti spraying stunt at the end of his junior year in high school gets him arrested. He spends the summer doing community service and landscaping work and returns to school with a pumped up body and a new bad-boy image. The beautiful and popular Bethany (the daughter of his father's boss ) falls for him but dumps him when he refuses to sleep with her when she's drunk. Things quickly slide downhill from there, making Tyler's life tense both at school and at home. The teen becomes more and more emotionally unstable and he tries to figure out how to remedy the situation. Mike Chamberlain punches out the voice of Tyler with honesty and intensity. This captivating novel's fast-paced plot, laugh-out-loud one liners, and gritty realism will keep listeners enthralled.-Karen T. Bilton, Mary Jacobs Library, Rocky Hill, NJ Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"Anderson returns to weightier issues in the style of her most revered work, Speak (1999), and stretches her wings by offering up a male protagonist for the first time."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
