Just for fun: I love You, Beth Cooper
In order to take a quick breather from the Joyce Carol Oates reading challenge, I picked up Larry Doyle's "I Love You, Beth Cooper." It a hilarious teen comedy exploring and magnifying everything that makes high school terrifying for a nerd. This book was riddled with pop culture references and filled with laughs. It was a quick, easy read, but I love a book that makes me belly laugh while riding the train. If you cringe when you look back on high school, this will make you smile. Denis Cooverman definitely had it worse than you.
