Exploits of a Reluctant (But Extremely Goodlooking) Hero by Maureen Fergus

Title: Exploits of a Reluctant (But Extremely Goodlooking) Hero
Author: Maureen Fergus
Edition: Paperback released March 2007

ExploitsI always enjoy a good laugh and this book provided many side-clutching moments.

After a rather daring impression of his math teacher as Mr. Potato Head, a tape recorder is forced upon our nameless narrator by his mother. “Try speaking your mind to this instead of to the various adult authority figures in your life.”

The Hero has a unique perspective, albeit a self-serving one, that often lands him in detention, therapy with the attractive but overly intelligent school counselor, or at the local soup kitchen, forced to volunteer by his equally abstract parents.

A great book for teen guys who enjoyed the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I felt a similar giddiness reading Terry Trueman’s Inside Out.
