Sleeping freshmen never lie

This book is a novel about a freshman named Scott Hudson who goes through what most freshman go through. He writes that Seniors take his lunch money, Girls forget you and are suddenly beautiful, some of your friends abandon you, and of course you never get enough sleep. So by making high school less overwhelming he decides to make a survival manual. Scott goes through a lot of trouble both at home and at school for example... In the beginning of the book he discovers his mom is pregnant, and that his older brother is coming back to live with him but that's not the least of his problems. At school Scott is always trying to impress a girl named Julia and he ends up joining a lot of activities in order to get to her which was very foolish. Scott goes through a lot of stress his freshman year but learns a lot as well.
All throughout the book in my mind as I read I think.....

Quote from book

"High school", Mouth said, staggering to the side as someone pushed him out of the way. " Here we come. This is going to be great. We're going to rule this place." Wrong Mouth. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. (Lubar 14).
