Just when everything is coming together for Sam, his girlfriend, Alicia, drops a bombshell. Make that ex-girlfriend, because by the time she tells him she’s pregnant, they’ve already called it quits. Sam does not want to be a teenage dad.

There’s only one person Sam can turn to: his hero, skating legend Tony Hawk. Sam believes the answers to life’s hurdles can be found in Hawk’s autobiography. But even Tony Hawk isn’t offering answers this time—or is he?

In this wonderfully witty, poignant story about a teenage boy unexpectedly thrust into fatherhood, it’s up to Sam to make the right decisions so the bad things that could happen, well, don’t.

    " This book was very good, even though you knew about many things that were going to take place. It took place in Europe. The main character in this book was given the average teen boy personality. "

    " This book was different from what i normally read. The story was being told by a guy instead of the usualy girl telling her story. It was a new thing to read from a guys point of veiw and i enjoyed it alot. i felt as though there was some suspention, and i was caught by suprise at some points in the story. sam and alicia, are the main characters. they met at a party that sams mom forced him to go to and they became a couple. when it came to the point when they were breaking up they found out they had a problem that was going to take alot of work to figure out. i enjoyed hearing what he felt and thought since the story was coming from sam. i would recommend this book.

    " High Fidelity remains one of my favorite books of all time, and I generally love Nick Hornby's stories (even though his novel before this one, A Long Way Down, was a bit of a disappointment). I resisted this one for a long time because it came out under the banner of "Nick Hornby does Young Adult Lit" and, well, I wasn't interested in that. Turns out this is more or less what you would expect from a Hornby novel, only the narrator/main character is a 16 year old skateboarder instead of a 35 year old record shop owner or mid-life-crisis-suffering heir to a fortune. This was a quick, enjoyable read but not quite up to the same high standards I have based on How to Be Good, About a Boy, and High Fidelity. "

    " Latest book from one of my favorite authors. All of Hornby's usual humor and wit but without much of a story arc. "
