School is finally over, and Will Carter has (barely) survived his freshman year. Unfortunately, he quickly learns that the summer break he’s been craving just might break him. When he and his girlfriend, Abby, part ways, Carter can’t help but think his summer is ruined.

Things start to look up after he’s unexpectedly cast in an independent film opposite the world’s biggest tween sensation, Hilary Idaho. With Hollywood knocking on his door, Carter gets a taste of the good life. Suddenly, his small town, friends, and family don’t seem as great as they used to. As tends to happen when Carter is around, things spiral out of control, and he begins to fear that he’s not the “somebody” he thinks he is but more the “nobody” he’s pretty sure he always has been. But maybe, with the help of a few friends, he’ll start to see things in a whole new light.

    " i really didnt like this book at all. Very,very weak climax and just frankly, not interesting "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 2/9/2014

    " This book was pretty good. Carter Finally Gets It(the first one) was better, but I loved it none the less. I didn't laugh as much, but I still cracked up on some parts. Carter is still same ol' Carter and it's great. He's so goofy, and sometimes I wonder, "is this how teenage boys really think?" Carter tries to play it hardcore but he's such a sensitive guy, it's funny. I love this book and Brent Crawford is a GREAT author. "

    " Will Carter is back after his adventures in Carter Finally Gets It. This was not nearly so entertaining; some of the situations he finds himself in were not believable at all and I don't think teens will like this one. Will is cast in movie the summer after his freshman year with a major star. He of course hooks up with her before realizing she has alcohol and drug problems; which he unconvicingly helps her to solve. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 1/22/2014

    " the hilarity continues in this book, picking up right where the first left off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shahryar Hasnani | 1/21/2014

    " Carter's Big Break is a sequel to the hilarious Carter finally gets it. This time, Carter becomes a movie star with actress Hilary Idaho. Once again there are crazy antics and stupid decisions, alongside some genuinely interesting and serious drama. The jokes in this book are hilarious and will make you laugh out loud. In the end, it feels a bit rushed and the dramatic parts sometimes feel a bit muddled. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 1/12/2014

    " Not as good as Carter FInally Get's It but I did enjoy listening to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/11/2014

    " I laughed just as hard at this one as I did at the first and definitely enjoyed the tweaking of the Disney factory system - Mickey Mouse Club is to the Get-Up Gang as Hilary Idaho is to Hannah Montana. Carter continues to be both lovable and a dumbass - so basically a pretty typical teenage boy. Nick Podehl continues to be awesome. I have yet to listen to something he's narrated and not love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alina | 1/6/2014

    " lmao his sooo immature and perverted but I love reading about it. Lmao I love Hilary even though she's a mood-swinging pill-popper but I love Abby more "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 1/6/2014

    " Not as good as Carter Finally Gets It. The book was funny at times and Carter did learn some things about life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/23/2013

    " I love the voice of Carter. It is a great window into the world of a teenage boy. His antics are what make the book so enjoyable. They seemed balanced with his moments of thoughtful reflection. The first in the series still remains the best but this was a nice follow up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abby Johnson | 12/20/2013

    " Another stellar performance from Nick Podehl makes for an awesomely funny listen. I can't recommend the Carter books on audio enough! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/23/2013

    " Crawford knows how to speak 15-year-old guy. Really, really well. And, as off-putting as that is (for me), I can't help but like Carter, who is, after all, a pretty decent kid. (With a pretty decent story.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/22/2013

    " Loved listening to Nick Podehl narrate the latest in the Carter books. I especially enjoyed Carter describe the worries that he has, the nontraditional path that he is choosing to pursue. It reminds me of my son who is doing the same! I also love laughing at the scrapes he gets himself into. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs. Tongate | 11/17/2013

    " Love Carter! Carter's freshman summer and now he's acting in a real movie in his hometown with hottie Hillary Idaho. Carter is still in love with Abby but they are not dating. A funny freshman boy book with boy humor. Keep 'em coming Brent Crawford with more Carter episodes!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 10/11/2013

    " I really enjoyed the first book... But like most sequels this one just wasn't as good. I di enjoy it, but the humor wasn't as good as the first! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 5/9/2013

    " Good listen, but I didn't like it quite as much as the first book. I missed all the shenanigans Carter and his friends got into in the first book. Still, I would probably listen to the 3rd book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 4/7/2013

    " laugh out loud funny. loved the first book too. "

    " This is the sequel to Carter Finally Gets It, which, as you may remember, I adored. This book wasn't quite as funny but I still laughed out loud several times. And, I enjoyed spending more time with the character of Carter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 6/1/2012

    " Not as good as the first book, but still awesome. Carter is still clueless and pervy, and I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 4/30/2012

    " Sequel to "Carter finally gets it". Almost as good as the first book. For ages 13 and up. "

    " Not as hilarious as the first one, Carter finally Gets It (which is the funniest YA book I have ever read), but still a fun read. "

    " Not as entertaining as the first one but still decent. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 sam | 12/7/2010

    " Another laugh-out-loud book by Crawford. I adore Carter because he is so honest. You'll laugh because, deep down, you know this is how the mind of a 15-year old boy works. His heart is in the right place. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Literature3!Amateur | 11/19/2010

    " Yeah I thought this book would be interesting because it had some movie making in it. It was ok.
    But Carter was too much of a jerk for me to finish it. He could have been a bit more nicer to his girlfriend and all. But anyways, it was ok. "

    " Fun light hearted. Fun to hear what was going through boys minds at that age and at the same time realizing Carter is a good kid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 8/19/2010
