A heartfelt, humorous story of a teen boy’s impulsive road trip after the shock of his lifetime—told entirely in lists!

Darren hasn’t had an easy year.

There was his parents’ divorce, which just so happened to come at the same time his older brother Nate left for college and his longtime best friend moved away. And of course there’s the whole not having a girlfriend thing.

Then one Thursday morning Darren’s dad shows up at his house at 6 a.m. with a glazed chocolate doughnut and a revelation that turns Darren’s world inside out. In full freakout mode, Darren, in a totally un-Darren move, ditches school to go visit Nate. Barely twenty-four hours at Nate’s school makes everything much better or much worse—Darren has no idea. It might somehow be both. All he knows for sure is that in addition to trying to figure out why none of his family members are who they used to be, he’s now obsessed with a strangely amazing girl who showed up out of nowhere but then totally disappeared.

Told entirely in lists, Todd Hasak-Lowy’s debut YA novel perfectly captures why having anything to do with anyone, including yourself, is:

1. painful
2. unavoidable
3. ridiculously complicated
4. possibly, hopefully the right thing after all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Teenage boy loves a girl he doesn't even know I would give this book a one star review if it wasn't for the writing. The writing was so interesting, I have never read a book that was written as just lists, but the execution was awesome! Now, the story seemed kind of ridiculous to me. It felt like a cliche "boy loves a girl that he has only talked to once". Didn't like it, it seemed really pointless.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I liked it The concept of writing the whole story in lists is really cool. Most of the feelings shared in the story are pretty true. I really liked the cover, but other then that I found the story kind of boring and pointless. They could have made the story exceptionally shorter. For a story of 600 hundred pages I was hoping for something better. I'm not saying it was bad, I just didn't find it that good. It didn't captivate me like most books usually do.
