Day 6 of 12 Days of YA Contemporary- I'm With Stupid by Geoff Herbach

Ah. Geoff Herbach. He is a treasure. His books are hilarious, laugh out loud funny and also very touching.  Great books for boys, but girls love them too!

All three YA's in the "Stupid series" have been selected as Junior Library Guild Selections. Quite a feat! And well deserved. Also. If he is ever in your area to do a book reading, you should go. Geoff met up with us for the GET REAL CONTEMPS TOUR in November and blew everyone away when he read from Stupid Fast. Truly.

Anyhow. Geoff has a new Felton book out this May and it has the best title ever! I'M WITH STUPID.  Right?? A must read! Coming May 1, 2013!


It's nerd-turned-jock Felton Reinstein's last year before college, and the choices he makes now will affect the rest of his life. That's a lot of pressure. So, he's going to make a list. What would he be if he weren't a jock? He'll try everything—comedian, partier, super student—and which ever identity he likes best he'll stick with. Poof. Stress gone.

Except not... Because the list leads to:
1. The whole state of Wisconsin hating him.
2. His track coach suspending him.
3. His mom moving out.
Before leaving home forever, Felton will have to figure out just who he is, even if, sometimes, it sucks to be him.
