And . . . action! As the uproarious trio returns, sensitive Sean takes the spotlight — scripting a low-low-budget film while fielding unexpected female fans.
Coop is cooking up another sure-misfire scheme (big surprise), and this time the comedy plays out from Sean’s point of view. What’s the new master plan? Making a cheapo horror movie guaranteed to make Coop, Sean, and Matt filthy rich! It’s a terrible idea, and Sean knows it. But he actually is desperate for cash — and for a way to wipe that big fat L off his girlfriend-less forehead. But when he agrees to write a script about the attack of zombie-vampire humanzees, he has no idea just how powerful a chick magnet this movie will be. Suddenly Sean is juggling not one but three interested ladies. There’s his accidental-girlfriend-turned-psychotic-stalker, Evelyn. There’s the wicked hot actress from drama class, Leyna, who seems willing to do anything to land the starring role. And even his twin sister’s gothed-out best friend, Nessa, is looking at Sean in a whole new way. Will any of them wind up as Sean’s true leading lady? Will Sean stop being a doormat and finally start calling the shots?
Fearlessly foul, this consistently comical series should be required reading for all teenage boys and anyone else with a strong stomach and highly sensitive funny bone. —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Those who enjoyed the first two books will find a hefty helping of more raunchy fun. —Publishers Weekly
A brazenly funny and sweetly insightful novel. —Booklist online
Simply put, Call the Shots is funny. Calame nails the language and thought processes of younger teenaged males. The crudeness is authentic and far from gratuitous, and it’s quickly overshadowed by the story’s heart. Shots is the last taste of this magnetic trio, and Calame has given it massive appeal. —School Library Journal
If you want a good read with a lot of laughs, this is the book for you. —TeenReads.com
