Carter Finally Gets It

Carter is ready to start high school. His plans include hooking up with all the hot girls (and loosing his virginity ASAP), being the kicker on the football team, and becoming the most popular guy in school. And things seem to be going along as planned, he is the kicker for the freshman team, he hasn't been shoved in a locker yet, and he has hooked up with "chubby" Abbey who isn't so chubby anymore.

But everything goes down the drain when Carter, in an attempt to impress his friends, takes some artistic liberties with his description of a date with Abbey. Word gets out and Abbey gets mad. Carter thinks he will never get a date ever again when the most popular, and HOT, girl in school asks him to the Homecoming dance, what Carter doesn't know is that she is just using him as a cover so she can really go with someone else who her parents don't approve of. Carter learns the hard way just how cruel high school can be.

This book is one of the funniest I have read this year. So read Carter Finally Gets It in private unless you want to look like a crazy person who laughs out loud for no reason. Also get ready for the sick and twisted (and did I mention sex-obsessed) mind of a 15-year-old guy. And if you don't want to stop laughing may I suggest following it up with Swim the Fly by Don Calame.
