{Review+Top 10+Giveaway} Spurt by Chris Miles @simonschuster ‏

Spurt is a young adult humorous contemporary by Chris Miles. It features a guy named Jack who has not yet gone through puberty and he decides to fake it to fit in with his friends. Stop. Stop right there, I didn’t need to read any further. Christ Miles already had me. Spurt is a hilarious book. It is a book I think will appeal to all readers of all ages and genders. I really can’t say enough good things about this book, other than it was a blast. All of Jack’s friends have either gone through or are currently going through puberty and he feels left in the dust…so he comes up with a genius idea…he can just fake puberty. I still crack up every time I think about this, because puberty is no fun for anyone, so I can’t imagine faking it is any more fun. But either way, Spurt was a hilarious ride through Jack’s various antics with his friends. The humor is spurt is at times outlandish,… Read more »

Land)   My senior prophecy predicted I’d ride into my ten-year reunion on the back of a mountain lion. I have four months to procure, train, and learn how to ride a mountain lion… I’m a HUGE Star Wars nerd. (There’s a vinyl Darth sticker on my computer and I may or may not be wearing a Boba t-shirt right now). The way to my heart is humor and book puns. I.e.-if you were a book, you’d be fine print. There really is a Bourbon, Missouri. The locals think the water tower by the highway is filled with Bourbon. A ladder, wire cutters, face paint, and give-em-hell attitude needed to determine if this is, in fact, true. A Shot of Bourbon is set geographically in Bourbon, but the book… Read more »
