He didn’t intend to burn half of Berkeley to the ground or create a media frenzy by faking his best friend’s suicide or enroll in high school dressed as an elderly Italian woman. However, he did. Nick Twisp started out an honor student and ended up a fugitive.

Now, in the concluding volume of Nick’s hilarious journals, we find him reenrolled in high school disguised as a girl, avoiding the eye of the law while fending off passes from undiscerning boys. The long-delayed resolution of his quest to win teen goddess Sheeni Saunders and achieve independence will fulfill every teenage fantasy.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Set in the cultural wasteland of trailer-park northern California, the episodic plot involves arson, car theft, police brutality and more.” Publishers Weekly
“Recommended for adults and mature young adult readers is this collection of journals from one Nick Twisp, who in Holden Caufield-style narrates his coming of age, his concerns about sex, and his awakening views of the world. Fans of Salinger will especially appreciate the candid voice and vivid memories of this story.” Midwest Book Review
“C.D. Payne has penned a take-no-prisoners book, and Paul Michael Garcia is the perfect reader for it…Garcia has a little smirk in his tone that perfectly underscores the actions of young Mr. Twisp.” AudioFile
“Payne obviously has a vivid and ribald recollection of adolescence.” Library Journal
