Stupid Fast - Geoff Herbach

Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach
Felton Reinstein has never been popular and is pretty much ignored. At the end of Sophomore year Felton hits a growth spurt. Suddenly he's stupid fast. The coach is after Felton to join the football.

Felton's summer is spent training, dating Aleah the new girl and worry about this mother and younger brother. His voice was real, straight forward and spot on good. I thought I knew what I was getting with this story, Herbach gave much more. I was wowed by the unexpected depth.

Stupid Fast is Stupid Good. Yes that's corny but it doesn't make it any less true. Felton Reinstein is one of my favorite male protagonist of the year. This wonderful debut is a paperback and only $10.00 which is a freakin steal.

I've seen a review for this book before. I love that the protagonist is a boy, it's hard finding books for young boys to read that don't feel girly to them and with themes they can relate to. I also like the title.

I had to tag you. The world needs to know what you do. My blog will tell you more of why I did it.

Oooooh! This book was at a recent book swap with my writer's group but my fingers were too slow and someone else grabbed it. I really want to read this one. :)
