I Suck at Girls by Justin Halpern

Justin Halpern isn't just funny --- he is hilarious and beyond cute.

Halpern is an excellent storyteller. He brings you into the moment and you see it clearly though his eyes. This is Halpern's second book, his first being the outrageously funny, Sh*t My Dad Says.

Justin's father makes many, many appearances in this book and gives his off handed advice on subjects ranging from kissing to marriage. You get to read about, Justin's youth, awk-ward teen years and early adulthood.

The very best part of this book is, Justin's relationship with his father. It is clearly a close one, mingled in with lots of love shown in variety of harsh, honesty words.

Grade: A
