I'm just gonna step right in and pick a book, if that's okay for now with you people.
The book is called Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt.
Have you forgotten why you love reading, my friends? Have you lost your reading mojos, mi amigos? Has your book list gone from totally chic to totally geek, my comrades? Well, here is a book that will get you back in the reading groove. After you read this, you will scower (how do you spell scower, fhs?) the Internet, looking for more books with teenage boy protagonists (and you'll have a hard time finding anything that measures up). This is a book you can safely purchase, rather than borrow from the library. This is a book you will continue to think about long after you close it/power it off. This is a book you will recommend to acquaintances during awkward lulls in conversation. This is a book you will bake a cake about.
You can read my review of it HERE on Goodreads if you need more convincing.
