Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford

Carter is a typical freshman boy. He has good friends that make fun of him constantly, he is really into sports, he doesn't care about school and all he can think about is girls. As a freshman, he is trying to figure all of this out, but he is constantly screwing things up in every part of his life. At the beginning of the year he has a girlfriend named Abby, but he manages to screw everything up because he can't keep his mouth shut. He tries to be the best at every sport, but can't seem to figure everything out. Will Carter ever figure out how to keep his mouth shut, impress the girls and his friends?

I found this book hilarious. Carter is a likable character that everybody can find themselves in. A few of the scenes are over the top, but overall Carter is great. He is learning who he is and who he wants to be. I think he really finds it in the end.
