Waiting on Wednesday #41

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on Stoner & Spaz II - Ron Koertge

Beautiful but troubled Colleen Minou is the only girl who ever looked at Ben Bancroft as more than a spaz – more than just that kid with cerebral palsy. Yet the more time Ben spends with her, the more glaring their differences appear. Is what Ben feels for Colleen actual affection, or more like gratitude? Then there’s Amy (aka A.J.), who is everything Colleen isn’t, and everything Ben’s grandma wants for him: clean-cut and upper-class, academically driven, just as obsessed with filmmaking as Ben is. But Koertge’s sharp, darkly humorous follow-up to the award-winning Stoner & Spaz, Ben tries to come to terms with his confused feelings toward A.J. and his inimitable connection to Colleen, who is sometimes out of it, sometimes into him, and always exhilarating.
I absolutely adored the original Stoner & Spaz when I was in school, and have reread it quite a few times. I was very excited when I heard about this one coming out.


  1. I'm excited too! I have recommended the first one to a lot of students. Great pick!


  2. Hee, this looks like a mindless fun read. Totally adding it to my TBR at some point, pile. :)

    If you get a chance make your way over my blog and check out my WOW. Yeah, I'm too lazy to post the directly, but here. :)
