Age Range: 14+
This book is in the young adult category, I get why but it will not really appeal to teenagers. It will appeal more to those within the ages 14-16, well, they'll find it more interesting and funny than the "young adults".
I found this book to be VERY funny at times, it actually made me laugh out loud at certain points throughout each chapter. If I were a 14 year old boy I would probably be able to relate to it more and find it even funnier, but still I'm 17 and I thought it was pretty darn hilarious, especially the parts where Les prayed to Jesus, gosh those made me laaaugh!
I would recommend this book to those who want a nice laugh even if you're not a fourteen year old boy, you will find this book pretty enjoyable.
Note: This book talks about certain things that some people might find to be not funny but inappropriate so be careful. If you find shows like Family Guy funny, you will find this book funny.
LES WANTS the girl. He thinks she’s amazing, exotic, perfect. But he doesn’t know how to talk to her, kiss her, or make her realize that he’s the best and only guy for her in the whole wide world.
Once he masters these things, she’ll be his! Easy-peasy, right? The gulf between dreamgirl and realgirl is explored and made somewhat less vast in this bawdy yet romantic not-quite-coming-of-age. Teens will relate to 14-year-old Les’s hilarious and squirmy longings, and the fulsomely awkward efforts he puts forth to make his real life match his fantasies. The story also
portrays the perils of unexamined hero-worship, and the strength and humanity of people that may seem plain and boring, but who stand up for what is right when called upon to do so. It is a tale both hilarious and thoughtful, in which, to paraphrase the old Rolling Stones adage, one boy figures out that even if you indeed can’t always get what you want, if you try sometime, you just might find you get what you need.
