    I loved this book. I am years away from my teenage years, but B

    I loved this book. I am years away from my teenage years, but Brent Crawford writes Carter exactly how I used to think in high school and that's why I can't stop reading this series. So real, and so unflinchingly funny that I had a tough time reading around my daughters...they kept making fun of me for my reactions to the book! These Carter books just get more entertaining with each new one.

    The title is a bit of the main points of the book is how Carter is able to become more focused (during his many detentions), but I know that authors often don't have control over titles, covers, etc.

    I love the range of emotions Carter goes through in these books. The balance he has between his football/swimming/fight-club life vs. his drama-geek/Abby life is fully realized in this 3rd installment of the series, and it's a pleasure to see Carter is not ashamed of any part of his life. But he is written as a real 15 year old, with all of the insecurities and problems that come with that age.

    Brent Crawford is a very talented writer - he just gets it right with the dialogue and actions of Carter and his friends. And he's super imaginative with the situations he puts them all in - trust me, he doesn't pull any punches either. There are tons of references to sex and many other bodily functions in this book (parents, beware of this for your early teens)...but in story context it always works and is so fun to read. There is also a major theme of loyalty throughout this book, and that rocks. But I want to emphasize the main reason I enjoyed this book - it was!
