The hilarious, take-no-prisoners novel about a cynical, sex-obsessed teenager's pining love for an intelligent girl– now a major motion picture from Dimension Films starring Michael Cera
SIX MONTHS IN THE LIFE OF THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS TEENAGER
Youth in Revolt is the journals of Nick Twisp, California's most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming fourteen-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive type-A father, murderous canines, and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response–all while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess and ultimate intellectual goad.

Love this book
This book is hilarious and an all around great book from cover to cover. the movie was a complete let down to how great this book is.
The book was unrealistic and over the top.
one of my child hood favorites. must have read this book 100 times during my teen years. definitely a great book to sit down and laugh out loud at.
Incidentally, this book isn't "just like the movie". this book was written years before the movie came out... the abysmal attempt at making this into a movie didn't do the book justice at all.
