The Spectacular NoweBook - 2008
From Library Staff
Sutter Keely is the guy you want at a party. He has no care for school or going to college, but that changes when he wakes up on a random front lawn and meets Aimee, a social wreck.
From the critics
Coarse Language: Lots of f words and some s bombs in there too. 6/10
Sexual Content: A sex scene, but doesn't show any nudity. Not graphic but very realistic

The thought does cross my mind that I could slip and end up cracking my head on the pavement just short of the pool, but if you're always going to worry about minor drawbacks, then you'll never accomplish anything.
To hell with tomorrow. To hell with all problems and barriers. Nothing matters but the Spectacular Now.
"You're not a bad guy, Sutter. You're a good guy. You just don't have a real firm grasp on the concept of consequences."
I was almost immediately queasy each time I chose to hang out with deluded, self-destructive Sutter Keely, but he was a multi-layered, complex, authentic person. An excellent, sad character study.
