My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Summary (from Goodreads): High school can be a time of terrible angst—Fs on tests, bullying jerks, broken hearts, and late-stage puberty are just some of the potential issues that all teen boys face. But what about the issues facing a Teen Boat? In this hilarious send-up of teen story tropes, the best-selling author Dave Roman and the cartoonist John Green deliver high school and high seas drama with a boatload of laughs.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
My Summary: Being a teenager can be tough - there are so many things to worry about that making it through high school can feel like the ultimate achievement. But what if you had to go through all these things with the added burden of transforming into a boat?
Readers will love the hilarity of Teen Boat as he struggles to get make it through some tough teen issues without getting shipwrecked (sorry, I had to).
My Thoughts: I had no idea what to expect when I opened up the package that contained Teen Boat!. I read the premise, and all I could think was that I had to read this novel and figure out what the whole teen-who-turns-into-a-boat thing was about - and I'm really glad I did. There were some great lines that made the book really enjoyable, and the way they poked fun at (while also sympathizing with) teen life was awesome.
Final Thoughts: I recommend you check out this book if you're a fan of graphic novels and want something light and funny that's quick to read.
