My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do not think I have ever laughed so much. I found myself laughing out loud at least once every few pages. I think this is a book where you will either love the main character Howie or hate him, I have to say I loved him. He is Witty, outspoken, sometimes embarrassing and obnoxious but at the same time easy to appreciate.

Each and every character in this book was well done. Arthur who is serious but has that dry wit I love. Kristy, who seems like an airhead but is actually quite perceptive, sweet and loyal. Cora who is brazen, sarcastic and tenacious. Howie’s best friend since childhood Amber and his goofy, laid-back friend Mitch add to some very funny scenes.

One of my favorite things about this book is the relationship between Howie and his mom. They are most definitely friends and each have a very clever and witty personality that make their conversations funny and endearing. They mesh well together and help to enhance the story overall.
