This book might not have been geared toward me (older teenage female), but I loved it.

Scott is just beginning high school, complete with all its pitfalls, scary upperclassmen, pretty girls, loyal and not-so-loyal friends, homework, weird teachers, and everything else. And on top of all that, his parents are expecting another baby.

David Lubar's narration (through Scott) is witty, wise, and spot-on without being stereotypical. Scott's various problems and discoveries about the beautiful Julia, terrifying junior Wes, obnoxious Mouth, and philosophical Goth girl Lee are touching, hilarious, and eye-opening.

In the form of a diary to his little brother, not yet even born, Scott figures out how to handle the first year of high school...and a lot more. ( )

It's a book that starts off very slowly and then before you know it you're finished with the book and nothing is really memorable, except maybe for his friend whose father owns a vehicle sales company. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyable. ( )

Scott's starting his first year of high school, so the last news he expects to get from his parents is that his mom is going to have a baby. As he ponders what it means to be a big brother, he decides to keep some notes for his little sibling about how to survive high school. Through the ups and downs of classes, crushes, and assorted extracurriculars, Scott imparts wisdom liberally seasoned with humor.

This is a feel-good school story. It touches on some serious things, but doesn't dwell on them. Scott's a likable guy, trying to do the right thing (though not always succeeding). Recommend for teens who aren't looking for anything too serious, or for adults who harbor at least a few pleasant memories of high school. ( )

We plunged toward the future without a clue.
The hall was jammed with freshmen walking in circles, ellipses, zigzags, and other patterns that marked us as clueless members of the lost generation. Or lost members of the clueless generation.
