Student Review: Carter Finally Gets It

The novel Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford is about a fourteen year old boy named Will Carter and his freshman year of high school. Throughout the novel, Will (aka Carter) gets into loads of problems. He gets in a fight, gets involved in a tricky love triangle, goes to his first high school party, and much, much more. I believe that every boy in high school would enjoy this book. I know that every high school boy can relate to the heart break that Carter gets into. For example, Carter goes with the prettiest girl in the school to homecoming and is very excited, but soon finds out that the girl didn’t want to go with him at all. I recommend this book for a variety of reasons. First of all, it is absolutely hilarious! There is one scene when Carter takes a girl named Abby to the movies. During the movie, the girl throws up all over the place. This scene had me cracking up. Another part of the book that I like is the Friendship between Carter and his best friend EJ. EJ is always by Carter’s side, especially when he stands up for Carter and tries to fight the craziest kid in the school. Lastly, the trouble that Carter gets into is very exciting and how he deals with it is amusing. At one point in the novel, Carter gets suspended and manages to use his days out of school as a break and not punishment by not telling his parents. All around, this novel is humorous, exciting, and a good read that I recommend for all high school boys. – Gavin Cauley, 9th Grade
