Cue the ugly crying. I first got my hands on this book a month or so ago, and it has continued to stay with me. I was unprepared for the onslaught of tears as I made my way through Jared Reck’s debut novel. Reck is a mega-talent: he had me going from crying to laughing within seconds, and it felt like the most natural progression in the world. As a real-life high school teacher, Reck captures the voice of the characters with such commanding authenticity. It’s so easy to relate to the protagonist Matt, particularly in his most cringe-worthy moments. Narrator Mike Chamberlain is definitely best known for his nonfiction work, but his youthful tone - that at times borders on teenage apathy - lends itself nicely to this production. I have high hopes for this one – I can’t wait to see what other listeners think, and I can’t wait to see what Reck does next."

And he's giving me the hairy eyeball because I was laughing just a minute ago.
There are more complicated and universal emotions dealt with in this engaging novel about teen-aged love, and I enjoyed it quite a lot!
