Publisher's Summary

From the author of Dunk comes this sparkling new novel that covers a year in the life of high school freshman Scott Hudson, who is sideswiped by the unexpected news that his mother is about to have another baby.

In a hilarious and touching journal addressed to the unborn intruder, Scott bares his soul as he copes with the trials and tribulations of a life that is changing faster than he wants it to. Filled with Lubar's trademark wit, enlivened by unexpected twists and turns of plot, Sleeping Freshmen is widely considered one of the best YA novels of 2005.

    "Pick Me! Pick Me!"

    First of all, Daivd Lubar is excellent for all those readers out there who would rather watch tv, play outside, or get some thumb exercise. He wrote the Invasion of the Lawn Weenies and other funny short stories, as well as the Hidden Talents novels. This book, however, is in its own league. This is well-written (both kids and adults will love it), charming, funny, and the performance is fantastic. I love the full cast!

    This book is about freshman year from a nerd's point of view. He figures out what it means to be friends in high school and constantly stresses about the everyday life of it. And best of all (I'm an English teacher, mind you), is that he's always talking about what they learned in English class. But don't think it's an extra lesson for you--the topics he brings up are topics every English teacher should discuss: puns, comics, and more.

    Just trust me on this: get past the initial cheesy part, sit back, and smile. Easily a 10.

    "A Wide-Awake Experience!"

    Over the course of his freshman year in High School, a boy learns that, many times, things are not what they seem at first glance. It's fun, interesting, and even a little inspirational to see him slowly "wake up" to see things the way they actually are as opposed to the way he had always assumed that they were. Sometimes, you just have to look past the surface to see the man behind the curtain.

    Although I found the full cast sometimes confusing -- I have to admit, I missed the narrative "he said," and "she said," as clues to whom was speaking -- the voice actors were well-cast.

    Oh, if you're wondering, the "Wide Awake" references all come from M. Night Shyamalan's first film, Wide Awake which brings up a lot of the same themes.

    "A Must Read (Um...Listen)!"

    I felt an immediate connection with the narrator, Scott Hudson. The thoughts and feelings of this young adult boy felt "true" to me. The Full Cast Family brings the book to life. There are also cool sound effects. My 11-year-old daughter has shunned audiobooks since her school experiences with textbook produced audio. I couldn't even sway her with Twilight. Ten minutes with this book and I have her hooked!

    "A lively and interesting performance!"

    This is the summer reading book for students entering 9th grade where I teach. I downloaded this book for my students with language-based learning disabilities to read along with, and they enjoyed it immensely. Because the dialogue of each character is read by a different person, the text really comes alive for the listener. And the book itself is a great one for any student just entering high school. A great read!
