Stupid Fast is playwright Geoff Herbach's first book for young adults. No one's more shocked than shy 15-year-old Felton Reinstein himself when he undergoes a tremendous growth spurt. After dusting the football jocks in a race, Felton marvels at his new athletic ability. Everything isn't looking up, however. Felton must also come to grips with his mother's sudden depression and his bratty younger brother. And then Felton learns a shocking secret about his past that helps put things in perspective.

    " I could not put this book down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angpfister | 2/3/2014

    " Even though this one seemed to be geared toward the young adult genre, I had a hard time putting it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqueline | 2/3/2014

    " Another great read I found through checking out the CYBILS Literary Awards. This book has a a superbly strong voice, portraying an endearing teenage boy simultaneously dealing with adolescent anxieties and a family crisis. This is a strong choice for all teen readers, particularly boys. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa Hendrix | 1/25/2014

    " Stupid Fast is about as poorly written as the title sounds. I was very disappointed in the fact that this is a 2012-2013 Peach Award nominated book. The story lacked any pizzazz. Fenton is a below average high school boy that can run Stupid Fast. His father left his family, and now has a new family. His mother suffers from depression and his estranged grandmother comes to take care of them. Fenton joins the football team, but knows nothing about playing the sport. The coach recruits him because of his speed. The only redeeming quality is that maybe reluctant male readers will choose it for the cover. "

    " Very good. Sports, dysfunctional family, bullying, but a good story too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 1/18/2014

    " This book is way more than a jock book. It is really more of a young man's journey of growing up and figuring out who he is, which I think so many young teens would identify with the main character for that reason. Good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 12/10/2013

    " Coming of age of an awkward, troubled teen who becomes a slightly less awkward, troubled athlete after a truly impressive growth spurt. Unique voice and perspective. Easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet Hutchinson | 11/17/2013

    " I struggled a bit at the start - but the characters grew on me slowly and by the end, I quite enjoyed it. Lots of swearing, however. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MR. D. | 11/16/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed Felton's story and Herbach's original voice. I can't wait to read the next two books in the series. The characters were memorable, real, and hilarious. I especially loved Andrew and Felton's relationship as brothers living in a difficult situation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arlaina Tibensky | 10/29/2013

    " Run, don't walk. How I love this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tabitha Olson | 8/9/2013

    " Hilarious!!! A great sports novel with great characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 7/8/2013

    " An awesome book. Unbelievable narrative voice. A great read; I highly recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiff | 7/6/2013

    " Loved the authenticity of the teen male voice, and the rawness of the story. This is NOT a typical sports novel, though I'm betting the cover and tagline will entice lots of teens, and they are in for an honest, funny look at a life-changing summer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Wheeler-Floyd | 5/9/2013

    " Geoff was kind enough to lend me an ARC of 'Stupid Fast,' and went through it in like two days. Felton's voice is propulsive and wonderfully energetic, inviting us to follow him through first love, social transitions, and family trauma. It's great stuff, and I'd recommend it to just about anyone. "

    " It was an okay story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Tackett | 4/9/2013

    " Kind of like the boy version of Dairy Queen. Which is to say, I liked it quite a bit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edward Sullivan | 3/18/2013

    " A consistently honest, funny story with a strong, engaging voice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kilee | 1/9/2013

    " it was pretty okay. at the beginning i hated it because the character was so annoying. but by the end it was a good book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 12/29/2012

    " The back cover summary is off base. This is a 'coming of age' story about a troubled teen trying to deal with a head case mom and over entitled little brother. Not a bad story if you are reading it from that point of view. SO not a 'funny' book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ALeXi$ | 11/16/2012

    " Those who liked The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and Looking for Alaska will love this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 8/25/2012

    " Not a spectacular book, but funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Long | 11/20/2011

    " Hilarious. I loved the quirkiness of the story. "
