The best shorthand description I can come up with for the experience of listening to audiobook reader Nick Podehl's enthusiastically expressive voice bringing Brent Crawford's writing to life is a Scrubs prequel, with Carter a combination J.D.-Turk as a high school freshman. A slightly exaggerated take on the mindset and adventures of many teen guys (all crammed into the story of one school year), narrated by a hilarious character (not many books get literal LOLs from me like this one did), with enough reality and insight to keep things grounded. Highly recommended.

A humorous coming of age tale of a boy navigating the highs and lows of freshman year of high school. I thought the author did a great job creating a character that felt genuinely real. I highly recommend the audiobook; the narrator did a great job and kept my interest through the entire book.

The first in a series about Will Carter, a teenager who is entering high school and all the strange and usually hilarious situations in which he finds himself as he navigates his freshman year. Nick Podehl does a phenomenal job bringing the story to life on the audiobook.

I really enjoyed this book, although the humor is definitely on the raunchy side. Carter seemed to be a genuine depiction of lots of the teenage boys I remember from middle-school and high-school.

Around the second-third of the book, I began to feel that the crazy situations Carter was finding himself were gimmicks. However, I was very pleased with the last third of the story.

A cute look at the modern high-school experience. Carter's voice is hilarious and his shenanigans are entertaining, if not always realistic (I hope). The main plot focuses around Carter "getting the girl". The redeeming value here is that Carter does find his place in the world by starring in a school musical, not the most popular of pursuits. Overall, the book is an entertaing read, fun without being too heavy.
