Beautiful but troubled Colleen Minou is the only girl who ever looked at Ben Bancroft as more than a spaz—more than just that kid with cerebral palsy. Yet the more time Ben spends with her, the more glaring their differences appear. Is what Ben feels for Colleen actual affection, or more like gratitude? Then there’s Amy (aka A. J.), who is everything Colleen isn’t, and everything Ben’s grandma wants for him: clean-cut and upper-class, academically driven, just as obsessed with filmmaking as Ben is. But what does A. J. see when she looks at Ben? C. P.? Or the person behind the twisted body?

In Ron Koertge’s sharp, darkly humorous follow-up to the award-winning Stoner & Spaz, Ben tries to come to terms with his confused feelings toward A. J. and his inimitable connection to Colleen, who is sometimes out of it, sometimes into him, and always exhilarating.

    " I teetered between three and four stars because while I enjoyed the story, it seemed to run out of gas toward the end. The relationship between Colleen and Ben continues to have ups and downs, with Colleen trying to stay away from drugs and Ben steadfastly believing in her despite many disappointments. Koertge has the chemistry between the two protangonists down perfectly, in my opinion. I'd have liked to have sees something come of Ben's movie-making with the new camera but perhaps there will be another book? Overall, a very satisfying read. "

    " Unexpectedly (maybe) better than the first one. And that's saying something. Only complaint (And it's not really a complaint) is that I keep feeling slapped in the face when the book ends. It's a fine ending...just one of those 'huh?' type moments. I really could just keep reading about these two forever. It feels like there is just a ton of story left to tell. :) "

    " Hard to believe it's been 8 years since I read the first Stoner & Spaz. This one picks up pretty much where the first left off and I don't think it was quite as compelling. I always prefer the initial getting-to-know-you stuff over the what-comes-next. That said, this one saw a lot of resolution to both Ben's and Colleen's efforts to "grow up". Often moving, realistic- a few steps forward a few steps back in relationships and attitude toward life. I began to really appreciate Ben's grandmother. Not quite as much about movies (tho still quite a bit) - even the poor Rialto seems like its days are numbered...damn you Netflix and streaming video! There could even be room for still another book. I actually wouldn't mind a little more of 'what's next'. "

    " The follow up to Stoner and Spaz. This is one of those sequels that you don't really need to read the first book, this one can stand alone. And possible go back to the first one. An okay read. "
