Youth in Revolt by C. D. Payne

Youth in Revolt took me a while to get through.  I suppose had I read the jacket of the physical book, and realized this was “absurdist fiction” perhaps my expectations would have been appropriately set.   Being that I read this on the Kindle, I did not realize this small but very relevant fact.

There were laugh out loud moments, many of them.  But there were also many moments that were too over the top for my taste.  Being told from the perspective of a 14 year old boy didn’t help.

I won’t be reading the rest of the books told from Nick Twisp’s perspective, but I do appreciate how clever the author was in his creation.
