Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Liam Geller is Mr. Popularity. Everybody loves him. He excels at sports; he knows exactly what clothes to wear; he always ends up with the most beautiful girls in school. But he's got an uncanny ability to screw up in the very ways that tick off his father the most.

When Liam finally kicked out of the house, his father's brother takes him in. What could a teenage chick magnet possibly have in common with his gay, glam rocker, DJ uncle who lives in a trailer in upstate New York? A lot more than you'd think. And when Liam attempts to make himself over as a nerd in a desperate attempt to impress his father, it's his "aunt" Pete and the guys in his band who convince Liam there's much more to him than his father will ever see.

Beverly B, August 20, 2013 (view all comments by Beverly B)
Almost every teen (and adult), will be able to relate to friendly, popular, earnest Liam and his well-intentioned, often amusing, attempts to win the approval of his impossible to please father. K. L. Going creates characters who are real human beings - sometimes flawed, always sincere, frequently funny and not a single stereotype in the bunch. King of the Screwups shows that sometimes growing up means facing painful truths about yourself, friends and family.
