Sleeping? Not An Option

It is Scott's first year of high school, and things have definitely changed. Old friends suddenly ditch for their girlfriends, girls are drastically prettier, sleep just isn't an option anymore, and not to mention the fact his mother announces she's pregnant... Scott has many new things to figure out as the year drags on, will he find out where he truly belongs?

"Never try to impress anyone. Especially not a girl. It won't work."

Critics Review

"A fresh, genuinely funny picture of an earnest yet hapless teen... A solidly enjoyable read sprinkled with laughs, puzzles, a few groans, some oh-I-get-it nods, and generally good geeky fun throughout." -BCCB


"Lessons are learned, humor mixed with sadness is prevalent, and the bittersweet year comes to a satisfying end for both the reader and Scott." -VOYA
