It all started with a harmless prank But now high school junior and resident stoner Lawrence Barry is one step away from reform school unless he participates in a mentorship program His mentee Spencer Knudsen a Norwegian exchange student with Spock like intelligenc This is a delightful read for teens and even for adults who like myself simply love to devour YA novels This novel was polished off like a fine meal in four courses I stuffed myself to the brim with Jack's humor a surprise love story genuine friendships and most of all a fun mystery journey that I could not put down This book had a bit of everything in it and I walked away from the table feeling very satisfied with the end but wanting to read What happens next Will there be a seuel I certainly hope we see Lawrence again maybe off in college next Bommerang is certainly a page turner from beginning to end The voice of Lawrence leapt off the page immediately and I felt empathy for him and his evolving complex situation I laughed out loud I cringed and kept hoping things would work out for our wannabe heroWhat I also enjoyed about this novel is how Jack knows high school students He nailed the inner dialogue of a young male as well as the challenges he faces with drugs friends administrators parents and even new technology Clearly Jack's experience as a high school English teacher serve him well in conveying real high school life awkward school situations as well as very real friendships that can easily go adrift shift and then pick back up again Finally it is clear that Jack's young Lawrence embarks upon a hero's journey to find out who he really is and what is so fun about it is that even to Lawrence it's a surprise what he finds within him
