Liam Geller is Mr. Popularity, an athlete, a chick magnet, and stylish. Liam may sound excellent, but not to his dad. Any way that Liam can, he always ends up screwing up and ticking off his dad. When Liam takes a step too far, his father kicks him out of the house to go live with his grandparents. Liam hates his grandparents and his mother knows that too. Liam's mother calls Liam's uncle a gay glam-rocker disc jockey -whom Liam calls Aunt Pete, to ask if Liam can stay with him. Living in Pete's trailer in upstate New York is not at all what Liam planned for his senior year, until he realizes it's a perfect opportunity to remake himself into a total nerd and be everything his father wants him to be. But Pete sees who Liam really is, and now Liam has to decide which version of himself he can live with. With events such as missing the first day of school, and getting kicked off the school bus the next day, can Liam still turn out to be his father's dream or will Liam see himself as his own person, living his style of life? Read "King of the Screw-ups" to find out.


I thought this book was very hard to put down. I loved it. With some inappropriate actions and language, I can't very well recommend this book to younger readers. I hope that other mature readers will get a chance to read this spectacular book!
