Book Review: Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach

Fifteen-year-old Felton Reinstein has always been on the smallish side, but in his sophomore year he starts growing…and growing.
During gym one day he smokes the football jocks in a 600-yard race. Felton has never been interested in sports, but there’s no doubt-he is “stupid fast.” As he juggles his newfound athletic prowess, his mom’s sudden depression, an annoying little brother, and his first love, he discovers a shocking secret about his past which explains why he’s turning out the way he is.

This book has received fabulous reviews and ratings on goodreads. Seriously it currently has a 4.63 rating which is pretty hard to obtain. I’m really not sure why it wasn’t a hit with me. I had the hardest time getting into this book and ended up skimming a good portion of it.

This book will likely be a hit with male readers. Although this wasn’t a favorite of mine I’m sure many people will enjoy the honesty of Felton’s character as he faces the challenges of growing up.
