A chaotic and contradicting mess consisting of charisma, insecurity, ambition, indecisiveness and curiosity. Some day, all my swirling inadequacies will coalesce into a fruitful ball of coherence and I might even write about it.

College freshman Jeep Trembley can’t wait to transfer to a better school. All he needs are better marks. Too bad he can’t concentrate. On anything.

College freshman Jeep Trembley can’t wait to transfer to a better school. All he needs are better marks. Too bad he can’t concentrate. On anything. Especially not when his raging hormones are out of control, his best friend is his belligerent conscience and one of his teachers is a sadist who’d rather insult students than lecture them.
Bright but painfully shy, Jeep’s monotonous days consist of endless schoolwork, incoherent self-rambling and inappropriate thoughts of his classmate Melody. When opportunity strikes and he gets a chance to tutor her, it finally puts him on her radar. But after Chase—the school’s prodigious football quarterback—urges him to join the team; it also attracts the attention of the provocatively flirtatious April.
Juggling a blossoming romance with April while fighting off strong feelings for Melody is one thing, Jeep also has to deal with Melody’s jealous boyfriend and the added pressure of playing under the football microscope while drawing unflattering comparisons to his talented brother Brent; reminding him that life is nothing but a series of sine waves. When everything starts spiraling out of control, Jeep’s foundation begins to gyrate by the roots, raising the question: can he even survive the semester?
Enter the erratic, ADD riddled mind of Jeep Trembley in this quirky, fast paced first person narrative by first time author Martin Reed.

This story was definitely different than what I'm used to reading. The writing style took a bit to get used to. Once I got past the whole timestamp thing it was just a regular old story. Jeep's inner dialogue with his consciousness was interesting and downright funny at most points. And while I'm thinking about it...Jeep? Really? Who names a character Jeep? That was so weird. haha I liked the message of living your life for you and no one else. The story definitely didn't end in the happily ever after that you expect for fluffy books. I liked this. At first I was irked because I'm a sap for the HEA, but the more I thought about it the more I liked it. It fit the book well. I really liked the 6th sense type storyline, definitely didn't see that coming. I don't want to say anything more so I don't give it away. But it certainly was a nice touch. I was very disappointed with the death a certain character. Did we really need that? Ugh. Heartbreaker! :'( But I guess that's neither here nor there. All in all, I'd say it was a nice story about an awkward teenage finding his way in life. Certainly was an easy read and an entertaining read as well.
