I'm very torn as to how to rate this book. I think I would've liked it more as a 13-year-old; which is good- because I think that's the likely audience.
Unfortunately, by the time I really got into the book and started to actually like the primary character, it ended...so I went from not particularly liking it to finally getting invested in the characters to it ending on me!
The narrator did a great job. I don't know how they would do with a character that isn't a nasally young male, but he did a great job in this book.

Narration - William Coon - Really Good
He really nails the character of Matthew - who is one of the main characters and whose POV we are getting through the whole book. A snarky high school student (nailed it) as well as his characterizations for our geek Michael, his sister Chrissy, Flap, Gut and Michael's dad! Oh and we can't forget Wanda! Really great job and an enjoyable listen.
This is a really smart, witty, well written, light and (at the same time) deep story.
The main character Matthew is a pretty bright and snarky high school student who takes it upon himself to "help" Michael. Michael is a geek. His nose is always in a book and he's a perpetual target for bullies, but he's no fool.
Michael is a really bright kid and while he begins to accept and even somewhat welcome Matthew's invasion into his life, he quickly figures out Matthew's motives.
It ended in a weird place, but I think that leaves us to our own interpretation. I feel like Matthew and Michael are both ending up in a better place (emotionally and socially).
