I first read this book when I was in High School and it was like reading Catcher in the Rye for a newer, more cynical generation. Even as the story gets more and more absurd, Payne never loses sight of the character of Nick Twisp and his crazy antics to win over a girl. This is a truly great book.

When I began reading this I was soon reminded of another book I had read by Rob Thomas, titled "Rats Saw God". The stories have similarities in the sense that they kind of capture the not-so-innocent side of youth. Within the first few pages most would probably perceive Nick Twisp to be somewhat pretentious and precocious, but in reality, Nick Twisp is a undeniably lovable protagonist. And the use of ridiculously large words along with his lewd behavior, and erotic thoughts towards that girl he pines for make for a very entertaining literary adventure.
