Extremely witty, snarky, clever, and funny, The Edumacation of Jay Baker is a unique and highly entertaining read. Jay is a fantastic character--he is sarcastic, smart, and full of incredibly spot-on one-liners. Jay's story revolves around school, girls, and his family. One teacher of his that is particularly relevant to the story is immensely likable and the verbal sparring that goes on between the two is exceptionally well executed. Some typical teen boy behaviors take place, incuding cruel comments, lots of homosexual slurs used degradingly, masturbation references, obsession with girls, and porn references. Language is very strong (jack-ss, sh-t, a-s, cr-p, b-stard, c-ck tease, p-ssy, sl-t, scr-w, wh-re, sp-oge) with one very well placed use of the f-word. Jay's family is a train wreck--his mom has cheated on his dad with the father of his best friend/crush. His parents separate, his sister is sullen and angry, though the relationship between siblings is a good one. Drunken, drugged mothers are part of the story, and teens have a lot to deal with in terms of irresponsible parents. Jay's relationship with his nemesis gets explained and resolved, and even his love life comes to a satisfying resolution. The humor in this book is very intelligent, the story a wild ride, and the pop culture references are epic. Teen boys, or girls for that matter, looking for a fun, fast, and wacky read will thoroughly enjoy this story.
