Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written in side-splitting and often cringe-inducing detail, Paul Feig takes you in a time machine to a world of bombardment by dodge balls, ill-fated prom dates, hellish school bus rides, and other aspects of public school life that will keep you laughing in recognition and occasionally sighing in relief that you aren't him. Kick Me is a nostalgic trip for the inner geek in all of us.

Review:

"I love Paul Feig's sense of humor — in a platonic way. This book is hilarious. I recommend it to people like me. And to people who don't like me." Garry Shandling

Review:

"Whether he's triumphant or humiliated, Feig is a droll storyteller." Booklist

Review:

"With this collection of very funny essays, Feig once again captures the experience of teenagehood with all its insecurities, embarrassments, angst, and obsessions....It is certain to release a rush of memories in all who have finally come to grips with the awkwardness of having grown up." Library Journal

Review:

"Teens will find lots to laugh at and relate to in these tales of insecure geekdom, even though the events took place more than 20 years ago, in the time of Olivia Newton-John records and polyester pants." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

The creator of the cult classic TV series Freaks and Geeks offers a truly hilarious and blisteringly honest look at his real-life high school experiences to which every adult can relate.

David Hollingsworth, April 6, 2008 (view all comments by David Hollingsworth)
A disturbingly comical journey into the often horrifying phase of youth, which is also ironic because everyone of us has had many unbearable experiences with growing up. Everyone who reads this book will see themselves as the main character, who is trying to survive his own life by dealing with his own personal hell to get where he is today.
