Convince us to read the book: Three words : READ THIS BOOK. Stupid Fast is a brilliantly written book about Felton Reinstein, a teenage boy finding himself hitting puberty. Living with his widowed mother and talented piano playing younger brother, Felton navigates the confusing world of male sports and romantic endeavors while being a role model to his younger brother and helping his unstable mother.

Memorable or Forgettable: Books are rarely written about the average teen guy's life. Things certainly aren't average about Felton Reinstein, but he does the best that he can. Stupid Fast really feels like you're inside a teenage guy's mind.
Cover: The cover really captures Felton. Makes the book attractive to all types of readers but also conveys that its a book about a guy, meant for guys.
