Carter's Unfocused, One-Track Mind by Brent Crawford

After an eventful freshman year and disastrous summer, fifteen-year-old Will Carter returns to Merrian High none the wiser. His sophomore year will present a host of new problems: the return of Scary Terry from juvie, the pregnant presence of Amber Lee, friends-with-benefits negotiations with Abby, prom night expectations, and the ever-constant harassment from his boys. When Abby announces that she might be transferring to a New York arts school, Carter's world is turned upside down and he'll be forced to make the biggest decision of his life.

In his signature voice, author Brent Crawford details young Will Carter's high school struggles, this time focusing on Carter's discovery of his true passion and the sacrifices he'll need to make.

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!
