From Paralympic ski racer and YouTube star, Josh Sundquist, comes an always-funny (and sometimes-awkward) memoir about teenage misadventures. When I was twenty-five years old, it came to my attention that I had never had a girlfriend. At the time, I was actually under the impression that I was in a relationship, so this bit of news came as something of a shock. Why was Josh still single? To find out, he tracked down each of the girls he had tried to date since middle school and asked them straight up: What went wrong? The results of Josh's semiscientific investigation are in your hands. From a disastrous Putt-Putt date involving a backward prosthetic foot, to his introduction to CFD (Close Fast Dancing), and a misguided "grand gesture" at a Miss America pageant, this story is about looking for love--or at least a girlfriend--in all the wrong places. Poignant, relatable, and totally hilarious, this memoir is for anyone who has ever wondered, "Is there something wrong with me?" (Spoiler Alert: the answer is no.)… (lisätietoja)

Meh.

I don't think that it's right to perpetuate the myth that people need girlfriends before they're a mature 21.* In fact, my favorite from his stories was Paulette (or Paulina?) who seemed to know how to stand up for herself and, bonus points, know what she stood for.

And, to be quite clear about my biased star rating, he gives homeschooled kids a bad name.

* Personally, I feel like this impossible myth also gives rise to unhealthy anger (against self and others) and, unfounded, poor self-esteem among many single young people. You are worth much more than your relationship status and the state of your virginity. ( )

Is the concept of this book funny or is it creepy? I'm not really sure. ( )

Kind of funny, but kind of creepy. Some of my students have heard him speak, so they'll want to read this. It might work for some of my awkward boys, more as a how not to guide, rather than how to get a keep a girl. One of my female students thought it was pretty funny, though. I do have a little segment of memoir readers who'll be glad for a little levity. ( )

again, Josh kills it, this book is awesome! just what I needed to read. Funny, and oddly informative since the lesson I needed/have been learning was the same/very similar to the one Josh summed up in the end of this book. Amazing, totally recommend. Easily one of my favorite books. ( )

What's between these pages is pure honesty, and it's hard not to fall in love a little bit with Josh. He openly shares his whole dating experience, right down to those cringe worthy moments we all wish we could forget. He does it in a way that is sweet at times, hilarious at others, and touching in a way that's hard to ignore. I'll tell you, I've never been a big fan of memoir type books. Normally I'm all about getting lost in anything but reality. In this case though? Josh's story was so well written, and so engrossing, you couldn't have kept me from finishing it.

I think what struck me most is how genuine Josh's character in the book feels. It's like reading a really funny fictional story, but at the same time at the back of your mind you remember that he's telling you all about his real life. Sure things might be changed a bit, but all the events, all the funny moments, all the rejections, those actually happened. With a bit of wit, lots of graphs/diagrams, and some adorable musings on being a teenage boy, he made it through it all. I can't imagine how hard it must have been to share all of that, but I'll fully admit I loved every minute of reading it.

Read this. Trust me, it's worth your time! If you're looking for something that is going to hit you right in that big ball of emotions you call a heart, this is going to be it. ( )
