Exploits of a Reluctant (but Extremely Goodlooking) Hero

Title: Exploits of a Reluctant (but Extremely Goodlooking) Hero
Author: Maureen Fergus
Rating: B+
Meet our reluctant (but extremely goodlooking) hero, who happens to be the sole heir to his grandfather’s plumbing company, The House of Toilets. He is obsessed with fried chicken, sex, candy, sex, boiled wieners, and sex. And did we mention sex? When The House of Toilets falls into jeopardy, his family moves from Regina to Winnipeg to save the flagship store. Unfortunately, our hero swiftly lands in hot water, as he is caught stealing petty cash from the assistant manager’s office. His punishment: Volunteer at the Holy Light Mission, a soup kitchen located near The House of Toilets. Instead of reforming his ways, however, he ends up in even more trouble due to a prank gone awry and, as a result, finds himself in the middle of a war between the group Business in Support of Business, of which his father is a member, and the Holy Light Mission, which the BISOB perceives as a threat to patron support of their businesses. Our disinclined hero finds that he must overcome his self-centered ways in order to save the Holy Light Mission …… and his own butt!

The Good: I liked the fact that this book presents the average teenage guy in the diary format that's so popular in chick lit. It seems that there's not much literature that just present the teen boy's point-of-view as he goes through day to day life (at least not much that I've come across.) The author's humor is also far above par! One of my favorite quote is: "I knew the breast pump was going to be trouble the minute I applied it to my neck. If you ask me, those things should have a warning label." Priceless!
The Bad: Ok, although the main character redeems himself in the end, throughout most of the book I just found him annoying as hell! I'm sure that's what the author had intended, but it was just a little too much over the top for me.
