"A funny popcorn read
The funny, profane text embraces the idea that nobody is perfect...Gabe's character growth will satisfy any appetite. " - Kirkus

"Framed as a transcript of events recounted by Gabe to his lawyer, Herbach's (Stupid Fast) novel realistically addresses the difficulty of making major life changes and the empowerment of not feeling the need to blend in." - Publishers Weekly
"[A] funny, honest, and an utterly likable narrator; his character growth and the decisions he makes are believable and his refusal to be a victim is refreshing. Give to anyone who has felt like an outsider or just wants a fun, fast-paced book with depth." - School Library Journal
" This is a must-read for all band geeks and a fun summer ride for anyone who remembers the factions of high school and the challenges of trying to fit in" - The Plain Dealer
"Gabe encapsulates the perfect outsider teenage boy voice with just the right amount of vulgarity and sarcasm... a great addition to a library serving teen guys." - VOYA
"The multiple facets of this story blend together beautifully, creating a hilarious story told with a fresh and realistic voice that teenagers will easily relate to. Highly Recommended" - Library Media Connection
