Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach
Release Date: June 6, 2011
Fifteen-year-old Felton Reinstein has always been on the smallish side, but in his sophomore year he starts growing...and growing.
During gym one day he smokes the football jocks in a 600-yard race. Felton has never been interested in sports, but there's no doubt-he is "stupid fast." As he juggles his newfound athletic prowess, his mom's sudden depression, an annoying little brother, and his first love, he discovers a shocking secret about his past which explains why he's turning out the way he is. (Summary taken from goodreads)
This book intrigues my feel-good-book sensors. It sounds funny and reviews that had surface can't recommend this book enough. Plus, it has been quite some time since I read a book from a boy's pov, the last one being Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl. Hopefully it will reach bookstores in my country someday/soon because I would love to read Stupid Fast!
