Aissance LARPing group an overzealous yearbook editor and three vindictive chickens and Lawrence soon realizes that his situation may be a little out of control But Spencer seems to have some answers In fact Spencer may be the one friend Lawrence never knew he need This book doesn't fit into most stereotypesAnd yet it doesOkay so while American high school scenarios which include homecoming house parties and teenagers doing things they aren't supposed to be doing is all overrated this book goes beyond itA character with whom you totally do not sympathise at the beginning somehow manages to gain your approval by the end While it does not mean he does a full 180 and become suddenly perfect it's what makes it all the likable I like Spencer possibly the most for his support and stability in moments when nothing makes sense and you think Lawrence is done for this timeMost people may think this novel as average but I think in tough times like the present you need a novel that gives you something to laugh about

The Boomerang EffectIt all started with a harmless prank But now high school junior and resident stoner Lawrence Barry is one step away from reform school unless he participates in a mentorship program His mentee? Spencer Knudsen a Norwegian exchange student with Spock like intelligen Am I the first review? I think I'm the first reviewThis book is great From the beginning I was completely on board with Larry He's a wannabe Ferris Bueller type someone whose antics are supposed to be charming but he never uite makes it there And yet his vulnerability and confusion is exactly what sets him apart from other charming clowns He's someone who feels like he's carved out a place in his school and who's created an identity and yet there's something about it that's not uite secure And when he uits smoking pot in the wake of a major threat by the principal to expel him and send him to the alternative school he finds himself lost Almost instantly his core identity is taken from him and he becomes kind of a wandererThe book is anchored by the friendships he forms with his freshman mentee Spencer and with his former best friend Eddie as he attempts to guide both of them in a big brotherly way to improve their lives This is a character who could come off as really bombastic because he thinks he knows it all but he clearly doesn't and often his advice is pretty ill conceived But he doesn't because he has warmth and he has kindness It's also a pretty funny book with really well drawn characters and a pretty gripping plot I definitely wanted to know throughout who the masked prankster was Definitely worth your time Sad this is Jack's first novel because if it wasn't I'd be going out right now to buy everything else from himNOTE I received an advance copy o the book from the author but that carried no expectation that I'd review it
