Everyone in town thought Stan was going to be something and go somewhere, but they’re starting to realize that when this boy genius can’t even get out of Happy Video, he’s going nowhere, faster. But when things look like they’re only getting worse, Stan is forced to decide what he wants to do with his life. Suddenly, he may be getting somewhere afterall. With sarcastic, dry wit reminiscent of David Sedaris and Tom Perrotta, this debut YA novel delivers with laugh-out-loud hilarity and a lot of heart.
