I wanted to give this book four stars because it wasn't one of my absolute favorites but I couldn't bring myself to give it less than a 4.5 star rating. Excellently written, hilarious throughout and kept me entertained from start to almost finish. The ending was a bit happy go lucky for me but I realize this was written for a teen audience. I enjoyed the laughter the book started off with and I think it would have been a bit better if the humor continued throughout. Overall a great book that I would recommend to almost anybody who likes a laughter filled, coming of age story. Read it!
