Summary

Nick Twisp started out an honor student and ended up a fugitive. Youth in Revolt is the three-volume journal of Nick Twisp, California's most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming 14-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive Type-A father, murderous canines (in triplicate), and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response, all while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess and ultimate intellectual goad. He's smart, he's horny, he's resourceful, and he's on the loose.

Critic reviews

"An unstintingly hilarious black comedy....has all the earmarks of a classic." ( Los Angeles Times)
"C.D. Payne has penned a take-no-prisoners book, and Paul Michael Garcia is the perfect reader for it....Garcia has a little smirk in his tone that perfectly underscores the actions of young Mr. Twisp." ( AudioFile)

True Story

I loved this true life story of a boy and his path to enlightenment.

Book two is all screwed up there are parts that are in different order and is annoying.

Great Read

I typically read crime novels or suspense thrillers. This was a nice change of pace to laugh out loud in the car while listening. And I have to disagree about the narrator. I loved his delivery, especially his French accent.
