Carter Finally Gets It

Crawford, Brent. Carter Finally Gets It. Disney-Hyperion, 2009.

Carter has ADD and he stutters. He's a freshman in high school and still a virgin. This book follows Carter throughout his classes and his interactions with the fair sex.

I didn't really enjoy this book much. I was glad for a book about a student with ADD and with a speech impairment, but I found it dizzying to be inside Carter's ADD-addled brain. He seemed like the kind of goofball kid I would have enjoyed teaching even though he drove me nuts. As such, there isn't a ton of plot in this story.

Recommended for: young adults
Red Flags: Carter is a teen boy, and we're inside his brain, so lots of imagined sex.
Overall Rating: 3/5 stars
