Synopses & Reviews
Move over Bridget Jones. Nick Twisp is back. In Revolting Youth: The Further Journals of Nick Twisp
, America's own comic diarist returns with more riotous adventures through the land mines of 21st century adolescence. This sequel to C.D. Payne's epic-length first-novel Youth in Revolt
finds love-struck Nick Twisp still on the lam from the law and his parents.
Our 14-year-old hero (and his multiplying alter egos) now must battle blizzards, back-stabbing aliens, vengeful parents, and school officials determined to schedule him into girls' gym. He conspires to play cupid, journeys south of the border on a secret mission, takes some gunplay lessons from his distraught mom, and still finds time to confide all to his diary while inadvertently wreaking havoc in cyberspace.
"[T]he satisfying conclusion to this novel will leave Payne's audience hoping for further Twispian tales." Booklist
