It's geeks versus jocks in an epic battle of the beverages!
From "one of the most real, honest, and still funny male voices to come around in a while" (YALSA) comes a brand-new cast of quirky characters, pitting fat boy Gabe against the high school cheerleading team in a battle over control of the school's soda machine.
The war is ON! Never have the stakes been so high. Never have the trenches been so deep. Never has one soda vending machine been so vital. When the high school cheerleading team takes over the machine's funds previously collected by the pep band, Gabe will not stand for it. Something must be done.
It's pretty refreshing to find a book in the YA genre NOT narrated by a female. It's even better to find one written by a male with whom I can actually identify.
Best of all? We have an excerpt for you right here
Gabe is a geek, and a fat one at that. But, even only having read this small bit of it, you can he still manages to have an entirely irreverent sense of humor (all while avoiding the funny fat sidekick trope.) It looks like its one of those books where the writing is so vivid, you can just see the scene, just envision Gabe sitting in the police station, eyes bugging out over the fact that someone released sheep in the school.
You can preorder the book here for release on May 6.
What do you guys think? Are you as ready for more males in this genre as I am?
