Praise for Youth in Revolt
"The funniest book you’ll read this year." —Los Angeles Times
"This hilariously cynical sex farce about bright teenagers combines creaky Shakespearean plot twists with real insights about growing up in the present chaos." —The Oregonian
The hilarious, take-no-prisoners novel about a cynical, sex-obsessed teenager’s pining love for an intelligent girl—the basis for the major motion picture starring Michael Cera.
Youth in Revolt is the journals of Nick Twisp, California’s most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming fourteen-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive type-A father, murderous canines, and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response—all while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess, and ultimate intellectual goad.
