As Carter would say... This book is awesome!

Carter is a teen with a head full the worries of a pubescent. Also, he can be an idiot. What makes him interesting is his hilarious point of view. Carter is transitioning into high school. Everything is complicated for him because he is simply clueless until he finally understands what self discovery and individuality are all about. I do not consider Carter a complex character with a pecul iar way to analyze. It is his decision making process that makes things complicated for him. Carter is a MC with pizzazz.

The author Brent Crawford elevates the concept of the hormonal adolescent by making Carter interesting, dynamic and vital for the story to be fun. Sincerely, I look forward to read more books on this series. This kid and his idiosyncrasies make for a good story anytime.

Those of us who listen to audio books love to listen to them while we commute, so we look for a good narrator. Nick Podehl is such a good narrator. His voice is clear and with a good tone. The narration is enthusiastic which is great because Carter is constantly pumped up. Carter shows enthusiasm in every project he puts his head on. Podehl, as a narrator always captures that. I think that this narrator is one of the pillars that makes this audio book so good. I can assure you that Podehl's narration made me enjoy the book amazingly.

This book was meant to be an audio. I can't picture myself reading Carter's experiences because his daily happenings are meant to be told by him. The narrator Nick Podehl became Carter. But also, he became every character because his narration style made it possible. Genders can be differentiated in the book which is great.

I couldn't stop listening to this audio.

I want to listen to more audiobooks performed by Nick Podehl.  You can browse a list of his works hereYou can visit author Brent Crawford at his site or look for him at twitter @brentcraw

About Carter Finally Gets It . Add this book to your goodreads!

Meet Will Carter, but feel free to call him Carter. (Yes, he knows it's a lazy nickname, but he didn't have much say in the matter.)
Here are five things you should know about him:

1. He has a stuttering problem, particularly around boobs and belly buttons.

2. He battles Attention Deficit Disorder every minute of every day unless he gets distracted.

3. He's a virgin, mostly because he's no good at talking to girls (see number 1).

4. He's about to start high school.

5. He's totally not ready.

Join Carter for his freshman year, where he'll search for sex, love, and acceptance anywhere he can find it. In the process, he'll almost kill a trombone player, face off with his greatest nemesis, suffer a lot of blood loss, narrowly escape death, run from the cops (not once, but twice), get caught up in a messy love triangle, meet his match in the form of a curvy drill teamer, and surprise the hell out of everyone, including himself.

About A Match Made In Heaven (from goodreads):
Aspiring comic book artist Morning Glory Conroy already has too much to juggle at her San Francisco high school--mean girls, inconsiderate cliques, wannabe gangbangers--without the complication of falling for new student Gabriel. Glory's best friend, Julia, was interested in him first, and if it weren't for Julia's deteriorating home life, Glory wouldn't have had a chance to get Gabriel to herself. But does he count as a real boyfriend if his overbearing guardian forbids even kissing? Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…
