REVISED SECOND EDITIONThe day I turned sixteen years old I had no idea that in a few weeks nearly everyone I cared about would be dead It was therefore with a free and unclouded spirit that I went down to the DMV and failed my driving testAllen Mockery's family is in ruins He and his siblings have been left to fend for themselves and the results Gang fights in the driveway The occasional police raid And explosions are among the less disconcerting sounds from the room across the hallI'll have a kiwano cherimoya smoothie please And for my two free mix ins paprika and ibuprofenAllen has found a refuge at his best friend Peggy's house Hers seemed like the ideal family a dr. So post college I found this book in the YA section of my local library I read it and fell in love My roommate then read it and she fell in love I re read it she re read it etc Somehow I manage to forget the title and the author and in the subseuent ten years or so I keep searching the internet for some clue that will lead me back to this bookThen lo and behold in the dingy aisles of a large dollar store in Middlebury VT this past Christmas I find twenty hardback editions I bought five Adam Cadre if you are reading this msg me and I d be happy to send you a check as I imagine you are getting no royalties from that saleAnyway I just read it for I think the third timeThis novel is the satire that me and my high schools would have written if our lives had been slightly disaffected and suburban It is the literary complement to the amazing Veronica Mars tooThe basic plot a wise ass super intelligent kid has found a position for himself in the delicate ecosystem of high school It reuires him to be a sort of a proud dork an emissary between social groups and terminally sarcastic He comes from a family that has been through a lot and he is attracted unsurprisingly to a girl down the street who he thinks represents utter normalcyOf course he is wrong and a lot happens to drive the book toward a tragic ending which is heavily foreshadowed from page one It s important to remember that this is a form of satire and while the plot points may sound cliched two things really set it apart 1 the characters represent fully formed people There is a tendency to think of high schoolers as absent the same personality traits we observe in adults Yes kids are still developing etc but some of them are as big of an asshole at 16 as they will be at 52 and Cadre captures that well 2 The narrative voice Devastatingly funny insightful and clueless all at the same timeI can not say enough about this book and yet I think this review falls somewhat flat Trust me Just read it I have a few extra copies

Summary Ready Okay

Amatic contrast to his own but now it too is showing signs of falling apartShe looked like she'd been treated with a glaze made from fairies' wings and angels' haloes He had the body of a Greek god and not even one of the crappy ones like Deipneus the god of breadAt school he meets September At first her family seems to have it together So why is she always calling in a panic asking for help with yet another crisisSomeone had put on Super Sounds of Stagflation or some other 'Best of the 's' compilation and he had taken to the dance floor like a one man disco inferno or at least a disco grease fireAll right what gives Somber plot lines warnings of disaster but wacky uot. I don t know how to feel right now

    On Cadre's website he mentions that one of his favorite kinds of stories are those which establish a false ceiling; they suggest a certain narrative capacity which is eventually surpassed when the reason for that initial limitation is revealed and eliminated He does something similar in this book in which a precocious high schooler relates the events leading up to his final year of school at the end of which as he warns

    My feelings about this book are complex I want to talk to other people I know who have read it but due in part to the subject matter I would also have a hard time exactly recommending it to people It's dark though not dour and it both deals with trauma as a story element AND happens to coincide with real life trauma that shows up in the news again and again But I gave it five stars because I read than half of it in a single day
