Move over Bridget Jones. Nick Twisp is back. In Revolting Youth: The Further Journals of Nick Twisp America's own comic diarist returns with more riotous adventures through the land mines of 21st century adolescence. This sequel to C. D. Payne's epic-length first-novel Youth in Revolt finds love-struck Nick Twisp still on the lam from the law and his parents. Our 14-year-old hero (and his multiplying alter egos) now must battle blizzards, back-stabbing aliens, vengeful parents, and school officials determined to schedule him into girls' gym. He conspires to play cupid, journeys south of the border on a secret mission, takes some gunplay lessons from his distraught mom, and still finds time to confide all to his diary while inadvertently wreaking havoc in cyberspace. First self-published by the author in 1993 and released by Doubleday in 1995, Youth in Revolt has been hailed by many readers as the funniest novel they've ever read. Several critics have compared it to A Confederacy of Dunces.
Precocious fourteen-year-old diarist Nick Twisp records his struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and win the affections of the beauteous teenage goddess Sheeni Saunders.
