Stupid Fast
ISBN 978-1402265075

It’s about a boy. It’s about sports. It’s about being a serious dork. It’s about a paper route. It’s about bullying and the opposite. It’s about a girl. It’s about hair growth. It’s about a little brother. It’s about piano. It’s about a depressed mother. It’s about learning to be who you are. It’s about not hiding.

“In the tradition of great young adult protagonists like Holden Caulfield and Eric 'Moby' Calhoune comes Felton Reinstein, soon to be sixteen… Surprises abound in this future youth classic…”
“It’s rare to gain access to a male teen’s thoughts at his most vulnerable… Felton is a hero for all readers—male and female. And Herbach (who admits to growing up in Wisconsin as 'both a dork and a jock') is a writer to watch.”
“Whip-smart and painfully self-aware, Stupid Fast is a funny and agonizing glimpse into the teenage brain…Young readers looking for a genuinely memorable first-person narrator—in the vein of Sherman Alexie’s Absolutely True Diary of a Part–Time Indian or Pete Hautman’s Godless— should really catch up to Stupid Fast this summer.”
