Nick Twisp, a 14-year-old boy going on 30, somehow manages to meet a girl who is his intellectual and sexual equal. That's when it gets interesting. C.D. Payne has penned a take-no-prisoners book, and Paul Michael Garcia is the perfect reader for it. Sure, Garcia doesn't sound like a normal kid, but then the kid in question is far from normal. Garcia has a little smirk in his tone that perfectly underscores the actions of young Mr. Twisp as he manipulates his divorced parents, his friends, and his neighbors into helping him reunite with the girl of his dreams. He's a holy terror, and listeners may smile at his antics—while inwardly thanking the universal powers that their own offspring is nothing like him.
