“You can major in business and still make movies. You don’t have to be one thing; you can be a lot of things.”
I was trolling the library for light and fun books to read, so I picked up…Now Playing: Stoner & Spaz II by Ron Koertge? Yeah, I don’t know what I was thinking either. While the book is a fast read, it is definitely not light-hearted or fun. I’ll try not to let that affect my review too much, but, honestly, I found the story kind of bleak. Even though it’s ultimately hopeful! But yeah.
The story is told from Ben’s point of view, and while I wouldn’t call him whiny, I would call him negative. And I was shocked by it! Was he that negative in the first book? Probably! But I was most likely in a different mood then.
Bleak Ben attitude aside the characters are ace (love Marcie & Grandma & AJ and I even like what I learn about Colleen, though she is exhausting). So basically the book is full of awesome female characters with wonderful shading. I was just in the mood for something a little lighter, so didn’t respond to this book so well. But I liked it. So the perfect book if you’re in the mood for something more serious.
