From the author of Dunk comes this sparkling new novel that covers a year in the life of high school freshman Scott Hudson, who is sideswiped by the unexpected news that his mother is about to have another baby.In a hilarious and touching journal addressed to the unborn intruder, Scott bares his soul as he copes with the trials and tribulations of a life that is changing faster than he wants it to. Filled with Lubar's trademark wit, enlivened by unexpected twists and turns of plot, Sleeping Freshmen is widely considered one of the best YA novels of 2005.
Sarcastic and imaginative, combining snark and intelligence with lots of humor, this story about a year in the life of high school freshman Scott Hudson was a finalist for AudioFile magazine's 2007 Audies Award. Scott isn't sure what to make of the changes in his life: His mother is unexpectedly pregnant and his friendships aren't going the way he expects. Ostensibly writing a guide for his future brother, Scott pours out his frustrations in diary form. Narrator Ryan MacConnell's performance as Scott is self-deprecating and honest, and he is supported by a full cast whose bright-eyed performance makes this audiobook a true laugh-out-loud listening experience.
