Carly stops promoting her T.

S Teens Against Rodent Test Studies organization, just long enough to believe that he got beaten up and begins to take care of him. Any attention at all from Carly makes Duncan happy, but as his bruises fade, so does Carly’s interest in him.


Duncan’s plan to keep Carly is to hire a bully to pretend to beast him up just enough so that Carly will stick around. His scheme works great and he even joins T. This means less time that he spends at band practice with his best friends, Stew and Jess. Duncan’s life is being taken over by Carly, which is great, until it becomes such a problem to his friends.

They are getting really angry with him. Will Duncan be able to choose between his best friends or the love of his life? Over all, this book had an interesting plot, but it could be much better. The character development wasn’t quite in depth enough to make them feel like real people. In addition to this, some of her actions were a bit out of character. The plot is easy to follow, but there are no details on the setting of the story. One thing I particularly liked about this novel was the voice that was used.

The book is written from Duncan’s perspective and the writing expresses modern language of a teenage boy’s thoughts and speech. What I didn’t like about this story is that it didn’t give enough details to make me feel like I was in the story, watching the plot fold out in front of me.

Over all, the main plot was excellent, but the writing itself has a lot of room for improvement. Jun 06, Rose rated it it was ok. I thought this was an ‘ok’ kinda book.

Sometimes you can find jems in those bargin sections but sometimes you find just ‘ok’ books. The plot is right out of an episode of ‘Happy Days’ or ‘Three’s Company’. These are 80’s TV for those wondering. I liked that the perspective was from the boy instead of a girl’s usual POV. I used this book as a way to pass the time reading in a waiting room and when I was doing I thought this was an ‘ok’ kinda book.

I used this book as a way to pass the time reading in a waiting room and when I was doing laundry so it wasn’t too mind boggling. I had to remove the book cover becuase it look too juvenile I’m not a fan of the stock picture, model type of covers.

Jan 03, Brianna rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This book is the definition of: For this book, I read the cover, set it back on the shelf and somehow would end up right back to that book countless amounts of times and i got it and ended up loving it: Jun 03, Marsha rated it really liked it Shelves: Duncan Boone is whipped. Completely and totally whipped. Well, not at the beginning of this story. His time to make time with this special and spectacular girl is running out.

The lengths Duncan goes to in order to snag his crush are hilarious, poignant and absurd.


Standing by him and rooting or laughing hysterically from the wings or his bosom chums Jess and Stewart. They also happen to be members of his fledgling band. Jess and Stewart are captivating individuals in their own right. They are like a Greek chorus, commenting, criticizing, cheering or booing the action. Suffice it to say, the well-laid plans of mice, men and dweebs can be horrendous. It’s not a bad read at all, is it one I’d buy?

However, I might pick it up again at the library again. The character development isn’t quite there to really connect with the characters. Specifically I mean Carly. Jan 06, Jennifer Wardrip rated it liked it Shelves: Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToo.

Duncan has been pining over Carly for years. He has even gone so far as to manage an intricate locker swap to wind up next to Carly. But it isn’t until his friend, Jess, throws something at him in his garage that causes stuff on the shelving unit above him to come crashing down on him, does Carly notice Duncan.

So when Duncan comes to school the next day, bloodied and battered, Carly drops everything to care for him. She walks him to all his classes and has him sit at her lunch table. When his bruises start to fade, so too does Carly’s interest in Duncan. Duncan, along with his xnd Stew and Jess, devises a plan to renew Carly’s interest. They need to find a bully who is willing to rough up Duncan enough to keep Carly interested in him. No one at their school is acceptable, yhe the meanest bully at Maple Grove, Sloth, isn’t mean at all With hope waning, enter Freddie Wambaugh.

Freddie is new at school, and just what they have been looking for. At first Freddie says no to their proposal, but after thinking it over, Freddie agrees bh bully Duncan, on the condition that Freddie’s sister, Syd, can join Duncan’s band. Without clearing it with Stew and Jess, Duncan readily agrees.

Over the next few weeks, the bully plan works brilliantly. At least it works on the Carly front. beuty

The rest of Duncan’s life isn’t going so well. Syd can’t play the guitar. His friends are angry at him.

His mom got Freddie suspended. And, oh yeah, he somehow agreed to streak at the rally for Carly. Andy Behrens writes a quirky novel of how far a guy will go to get the girl. It was entertaining to read because usually these books are written from the perspective of the girl trying to get the guy.
