This is best described as "Confederacy of Dunces" meets high school. The main character has your typical young teen smarter-than-everyone-else attitude, but there's a sincerity behind it that makes it endearing. The vocabulary in this book is somewhat elevated, making it a bit difficult to get through in certain parts, but adds to the total superiority feel of the book. I got through this pretty quick, but I think it's mainly because I was interested in how mischievous this teen was - he caused more trouble during the course of this book than I have ever heard of anyone causing. Ever. I wanted to both smack and hug this kid at the same time.

A fun romp of a fake diary of a very precocious 14 year old.

Read most of this book... However got bored with it towards the end and didn't finish.. Was highly recommended to me and given as a parting gift, but not quite my cup 'a tea.
