These Are the Rules by Paul Many

Introducing a new author to Knopf Paperbacks in a hilarious, fast-paced story of a tortured summer romance—from the guy's point of view. "In this debut novel, Many adroitly captures the nuances and ironies of teenage ups and downs with irreverent humor and contemporary dialogue. The book is well crafted and nicely layered with metaphors...Many is an author to watch."—School Library Journal. "Laugh-out-loud funny, Many's story is the archetypal YA first-person narrative of the sensitive, bumbling teenager trying to figure out the `rules': about dating, and girls, and driving, and where he's going. It will move teens and engender wry recognition."—Booklist

It's the first teen book that I wrote, so it has a special place in my heart. I think you'll like it as well. Colm, the book's hero, has to face up to the perils of learning to drive and learning about the opposite sex while trying to work on his own individual goal of swimming a forbidding lake. I had fun coming up with the rules for life that he invents after each chapter. It's a fast and fun summer read and you can get AR points for it . Let me know what you think. I answer all my email.
