Best decision I ever made! Geoff Herbach should know that his book is fantastic! It's hilarious, it's a realistic portrayal of a teenage boy, it's heartwarming, it's emotional, oh and did I mention it's also hilarious? Felton has one of the most original voices of any character that I've read this year.
His character is funny, silly, sweet, adorable, and all kinds of awkward.

Of course the most endearing thing about him is that this is all because he's struggling to grow up. See, Felton is pretty much the parent to his younger brother Andrew, since his mother is a fairly absent parent. The two of them bicker, much like all siblings do, but you can see the love that is there too.
My favorite part about Felton though was his unabashed and hilarious view of the world around him. The way he phrases things had me laughing out loud! I'm glad I read this book at home, and not on the bus! Stupid Fast is such a multi-faceted book too. On the surface are Felton's physical changes, that allow him to be brought into the world of football.
His status as a "nobody" disappears, and all of the sudden he is faced with a much different set of social rules. However it's not only his social life that changes when this happens. Bring on the emotional parts of the book.
As things start to get better in one aspect of his life, it becomes a struggle in the others. Watching Felton deal with his dysfunctional home life, with the dark secrets that are buried under his family, was really touching. I liked the fact that Geoff wasn't afraid to show that Felton isn't just a one dimensional guy. He, like all the rest of us, has to figure out what is most important in his life. I fully admit that I devoured this book in one complete sitting. The mixture of serious emotions, life changing discoveries, and all out humor, made Stupid Fast a book that I simply couldn't set down.
My eyes were glued to the page people. Honest to goodness.
