Overview

Mitchell Wells may not survive eleventh grade. He really only has one friend, his best friend, David. His normally decent grade point average is in limbo due to a slightly violent, somewhat inappropriate Claymation film. And girls . . . well, does hanging out with his sister count? When David tells Mitchell he's gay, Mitchell's okay with it-but it still seems to change things. Since David's not out to anyone else, the guys agree to be set up with prom dates. But then one of the most popular girls in school decides she must date Mitchell, and he goes from zero to two girlfriends in sixty seconds. From his pending English grade to his floundering friendship to his love life (the one thing that's taken a bizarre turn for the better), Mitchell is so confused, he'll be lucky if he lasts another week in high school. And then there's the prom . . .

With a wickedly funny voice and a colorful cast of characters, Steven Goldman has written a novel for every reader-even those who like high school!

Steven is an amazing author and puts what every teenager's humor into this in-particular novel. If you just happen to find this book in a random library and read it, LOVELY. Because that's what I did. Hahaha, but after I started reading it I was SO absorbed in it that one of my best friends got tired of me ignoring her and snatched away from me. I was sad that she took it, but happy that she would be able to enjoy it as much as I did. Now my BEST FRIEND will be able to read it, too. Since I'm gonna buy like six copies!!!!!!!!!

I read the book in 2 days and it was awesome, I kinda of wish the ending was a little different. But overall I was happy. I was really wishes for a Mitchell-David relationship but i guess i can live without one.

I'm a high school teacher so I needed to read it before my students. This book is hilarious. It's exactly how my high school career went. Equal parts comedy and humiliation.
