I was just talking to some teens about funny books, and I mentioned that this book was one of the funniest books I ever read. One of them asked for a summary, and I came to my blog to cheat… but then saw that I somehow never blogged about it! That is about to change. 😉
Denis Cooverman was the valedictorian of his high school, so he was given the honor of making a speech on graduation day. Instead of the traditional speech about moving on to the next stage of their lives or reflecting back on their shared past, though, he took this opportunity to profess his love for the girl of his dreams [Beth Cooper, hence the title of the book]. In *real* life, a move like this would probably just lead to a lot of laughter and embarrassment. In this book, however, it sets the stage for Dennis and his best friend, Rich, to have an all-night adventure with Beth Cooper and her best friends, Cammy and Treece — all the while running from Beth’s crazy boyfriend, Kevin, who is trying to kill him. Some people might say, “Oh! This is a movie. I will just watch the movie instead.” Trust me, though. The movie is nowhere near as funny as the book!
