Review: Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford

Carter thinks too much
About girls and being cool
but he'll be okay.

Will "Carter" Carter (he knows it's a lazy nickname), is about to start his freshman year of high school.  He can barely talk to girls without becoming a stuttering mess and he can barely focus long enough to do even a little homework.  He wants to do well in school, get a girlfriend, win football games, but it's all harder than it looks.

This book made me LLOL (Literally Laugh Out Loud) at least 10 times.  I read it several years ago and then I just recently listened to the audio book version.  I was on a plane, people looked at me.  That's how loudly I was laughing.  

The characters in this book are all realistic and you'll probably find yourself reflected in at least one of them.  Even Carter's parents are cool without being cartoon-y or trying to hard.  If you're looking for contemporary realistic fiction that's hilarious and completely believe then you should definitely give Carter Finally Gets It a try.  And of course there's already a sequel, Carter's Big Break.
