The Downside Of Being Up by Alan Lawrence Sitomer - PUBLIC

Sitomer, Alan Lawrence The Downside Of Being Up, 213 pgs. G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2011. $ 16.99. Language-R (3 swears, 0 “f” – LOTS of innuendo), Sexual Content-R (lots of innuendos to boy puberty challenges); Violence-G; This book is about an eighth grader who is experiencing puberty and love and life.  His goal is to make it through middle school with the girl of his dreams by his side.  However, he will have some of life’s unexpected fumbles thrown his way first. This book is super funny and a very easy read. In my opinion it doesn’t have a place in the normal classroom and is more for adult audiences.  I think this book would be great in a public library, because it repeatedly talks of boy puberty inappropriately.   PUBLIC LIBRARY ONLY.  Reviewer: BMN
