I reviewed Carter Finally Gets It a few years ago, but since then the stand alone novel has turned into a trilogy. If you're looking for wacky hijinx and laugh out loud moments with a side of bathroom humor, then look no further than the Carter Trilogy.
The first in the series, Carter Finally Gets It, takes place during Will Carter's freshman year of high school. He's awkward, hyperactive, and deals with a stutter. But he takes on life with a good sense of humor. Even when the school bully, Scary Terry, is planning to kill him.
But he joins the football and actually does get around to talking to some girls, althought things don't work out with THE girl. But when do they ever?
In Carter's Big Break, he finds himself working on a Disney-esque teen movie. He still has a lot of the same issues, but he's learning to overcome. Or ignore. Sometimes he likes to ignore his issues, but don't we all.
And then in Carter's Unfocused, One Track, he's returned from his summer stint on the big screen to tackle his sophomore, so to speak.
If you're looking for books that will make you laugh and make you feel like you're not the only loser in the whole world, then I would definitely tell you to give Carter a try. Recommended for anyone in 8th grade and up.
