Comments Stupid Fast

  • Sarah (YA Love)

    If you know anything about me, I’m a YA-loving teacher who’s always on the look-out for great guy books. I am so stinking happy that I read Stupid Fast because it is destined to be a winner with my boys! I’ve already had some success with Stupid Fast because before I even had a chance to read it, one of my freshmen boys asked to read my ARC. I had to say yes because he’s one of my reluctant readers. He isn’t reluctant anymore! He tore through this book and was so proud when he gave it [...]

  • Syndi

    laughing out loud with this book. oh the bitter sweet and confusing and embarassing time of puberty. LOL. yep, i can relate to al of it. ur body grow into something u dont understand. the attaraction of opposite sex. confusing and frustrating relationship with ur parents. the constant hunger. not to mention the social awkardness. i like the author telling it as it is. and it is very relatable to my puberty experience. minus the pimples experience.

  • Reynje

    3.5 starsStupid good is more like it. If you’re looking for a contemporary YA with an exceptionally strong voice, well-rendered characters and a realistic approach to family, friendship and first love, I’d have no hesitation in recommending this novel. I assumed that Stupid Fast would have a much larger focus on football – not unreasonably, given the cover and summary. But while Felton Reinstein’s newly discovered speed and size do gain him the attention of the high school football team, [...]

    If you enjoy reading sports books, then Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach is the book for you. Felton Reinstein is a wimpy kid who is 15 years old and only has two friends named Gus and Peter. In late November in Wisconsin, his voice finally drops, he grows a bunch of hair, gets taller, and turns 16. He gets popular because he lets go of his shyness. So, he shows off his skills and talents at football tryouts and he nails it. Everybody is impressed. The sports stuff is a big deal for him, but at home [...]

  • Laura

    FNL Character Rating: Luke Cafferty/Landry Clarke*!!!!(* I tend to be biased against Landry because he looks a lot like one of my ex-boyfriends, BUT his nerd-to-football player persona works for this rating. And I didn't even necessarily like the main character of the book, so that works too. And I ADORE Luke, and his cute, sensitive persona works for this rating too.)On to the actual review:So, I'm at this point in my life where puberty is far enough in my past that I find teenagers bewildering [...]

  • Jared Keul

    Exciting book for guys that love sports. I was hooked from the start and just wanted to keep reading. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys an exciting, fast paced story. The plot is deepened by the rough home life of the main character and his fight to stabilize himself, his home, his relationships, and his new found talent, his speed.

  • Isamlq

    With a tendency to go off on tangents it was at first difficult to get a line on what Felton was trying to saying. I was constantly wondering where he was going with what he was saying; it turns out he was figuring things out as well. Still, he could get pretty funny. It’s not even him wanting to be a stand up comic, no… his is a humor that’s not intended because in simply saying what was, in being honest about one absurd situation and then another, his observations felt true, funny and ev [...]

  • Books

    This is not a story about football. This isn’t even a tale about a boy who rises in popularity or becomes part of a team (it sort of is, but mostly not). This is a romance. That’s what it is. A boy who grows really fast and who comes from a severely dysfunctional family, falls in love with a girl who could easily be thought of as a musical prodigy. Throw in liberal amounts of teenage angst and a generous helping of cussing, and you have the framework for Stupid Fast. The big no-no for me was [...]

  • Sarah

    Vibrant, funny, captivating. A one day read.Felton's voice felt so real, so natural. The all-night narration idea is just right for the character and gave me such a sense of the energy coiled up in him.I don't read much contemporary YA lit, so it was with trepidation that I picked this up. What I remember from the genre of my YA period(90s) is all Angst and Issues. And who wants to go there again? I was happily surprised to find a book that was about a person, not a cliche, and a person with tho [...]

  • Lorriezm

    Stupid Fast is about a young boy that becomes a teen overnight, or so it seems to him. One night he goes to bed a scrawny loser and in the morning he wakes up a very hairy, and very popular football player. Felton Reinstein not only has to deal with his new and improved body, h is has to deal with his malfunctioning family. He is the one who found his father "hanging" in the garage. His mother burns all remembrances of his father and eventually has a breakdown. Oh there is his little brother, bu [...]

  • Kyle

    I remember hearing about Stupid Fast because Sarah at YA Love Blog read it and raved about it. It was one of the books we recently purchased for our classroom libraries at school and as soon as I saw it, I couldn't wait to read it. It was great, as I predicted, and is starting to become a hit at school.The thing I absolutely loved the most about Stupid Fast was Felton's voice. Geoff Herbach clearly nailed the voice of a teenage boy going through a lot of changes (aka all teenage boys). Felton is [...]

  • Kellee

    This is one of those books that while reading I kept realizing, "I am not the target group for this book." This doesn't happen too often when reading YA, but every once in a while there is a very boy book that I read that I have trouble connecting to because, well, I am not and never was a teen boy. The great thing about Stupid Fast is how many different issues are going on. While I didn't connect to a lot of the boy stuff- lifting weights, brother stuff, puberty, etc. I very much connected with [...]

  • Hallie

    With its tragically dysfunctional family and humour despite all the angst, this should have been exactly my cup of tea. I appreciated the sheer rawness of Felton's voice, and how seriously messed-up everyone was, but some things just didn't ring true, and others may have felt accurate enough, but I didn't want to go there. The one thing that I couldn't see in any way other than a need for the author to have a feel-good plot-line for poor Felton was the romance. I'd have loved to believe in it, b [...]

  • Mari

    An amazingly well crafted book. I fell in love with the characters, was pulled in by the plot, laughed out loud numerous times, and was in awe of how perfectly the author captured a teen boy's "fast" growth spurt. Wow.I will say that there is a good bit of swearing in this one. I am neutral-ish on swearing. I don't do it much myself, and don't love to hear it out and about in public, but it doesn't make me uncomfortable either. I DO mind it in my reading when it feels forced or unecessary. Here, [...]

  • Nathan Masacek

    Stupid Fast By Geoff Herbach review. Where should I start, Overall I think this book is great. There were so many good parts in this book that had me glued. This book is about A kid Named Felton which before the book he had a life where he was an average kid but over summer he “grew” and gained the ability to be able to run very fast. Felton joins the football team where he becomes a star running back. Along he has some struggles with some kid that are mean to him with jealousy, but he also [...]

  • Murray

    Felton is 15 and he is stupid fast, but his best friend is leaving for the summer. The jocks want him to start working out for the upcoming football season. The family that has rented out his friend's house contains a talented girl, who thinks Felton is weird, but she likes weird. With new friendships forming and his body changing his mother and his younger brother are getting crazier and crazier. This book takes a while to develop as Felton is not very likable, but he grows on you as the myster [...]

  • Lesa Boutin

    I wish I could have rated this higher because I seriously loved the character, his voice, and outlook, and the writing was fantastic, but, for me, the story lagged and was slow. I grew frustrated with trying to get to the point. I wondered if it was because it was the audio version, but I loved the narrator too! Which, again, is why I wish I could rate this higher. Definitely recommend it, though. Great male protagonist.

  • Trent

    it was a really good book with all the challenges that Felton had to face

  • Ken

    Never judge a book by its cover. I bought that at Clichés R Us and thought I'd throw it out because, with STUPID FAST, you certainly expect a sports book and get instead a family social drama book (or whatever they're called -- contemporary realistic fiction, maybe?). Not to worry, Herbach's equal to the task, and once you realize that it's a CRF in sports book's clothing, it's cool. And yes, you get a little bit of sports thrown in, but just a little, and mostly at the end, so if you're lookin [...]

    On the Cybils 2011 shortlist for YA Fiction!Felton has always been a squirrely, little kid, but one spring he finds that he not only has grown a ton, he has been able to channel his energy into running and is amazingly fast. He is recruited for the track team, where he meets some boys who encourage him to play football. Over the summer, he trains for that and gets even bigger, but everything else starts falling apart. His best friend is away for the summer, and Felton is running his paper route [...]

Felton wasn't very popular and only had two real friends, Peter, and Gus. He is really only friends with Peter because he can drive.

At the age of five, Felton finds his father's body after he hung himself. Felton grows up insecure with some bad advice from his mother, doctors, and not having a father figure.

  • Dylen kicherer

    The book Stupid Fast is the best sport book I have ever read. This book is great because this book can be related to you in so many ways. This book is about how a sophomore named Felton Reinstein that had just hit puberty is getting super huge. Felton has never been in sports before but is crazy fast. After running the mile in gym class all of the coaches in school wanted him on their team. He finally gives into the track team coach. Although he has never done any sports, he is gifted with speed [...]

  • Tom Mayer

    My book follows Felton Reinstein. This tiny boy who is to be considered as geek goes through a major growth spurt and becomes stupid fast. This attracts attention of the football players because of his insane speed. But will this speed turn him from geek to jock?This book had some very well written parts and parts I did not like. One thing that I liked what the author did is have the point of view in first person because it gave me what Felton is really thinking in his mind. I thought it made it [...]

  • Dave

    3.5 is more accurate. What began as another teen angsty tale with ho-hum characters and a little confusion on my part (why was the mother so obtuse?), transformed into an extremely personal and sympathetic plight of the main character, Felton Reinstein, growing up in a small Wisconsin college town. Felton and his younger brother Andrew are being raised by their hippie-esque mother Jerri, who they call Jerri (at her insistence), and no living father (though Felton has vague memories of him). The [...]

  • Logan Erdmann

    I really liked this book and was able to connect to it because of the sports connection. I think that this book exemplifies that there is a lot more beneath the surface to a persons life. I didn't like how his mother just shuts down and becomes depressed. Felton is also targeted by a teammate that hurts him pretty bad.The main characters are Felton, Aleah, and Jerri. Felton is a super fast athlete that wows all of the coaches at the high school. Jerri is his sweet mother that turns into a mean m [...]

  • Cindy Minnich

    Felton just realized that he was stupid fast the year he was 15. Fast enough to get noticed during gym class by the track coach. Fast enough that he should have beaten two-time states winner Kennedy Johnson during the last track meet – except that he was on the sidelines puking instead. Fast enough to hear Coach Johnson talking about arranging for him to have his own recruiting page and hosting D-I (Division I) scouts to see him play a game he has never even gone to see on a fall Friday night. [...]

  • Lisa K

    Wow. So much more than a sports book. Yet, like Tangerine and Pop, it's a book that shows a non-athlete the draw, the thrill, is to sports. Felton used to be the awkward kid, the one whose dad killed himself. Starting in November of sophomore year, he grew and grew, and ate and ate, and slept a lot, too. Some of this seemed to make his mom mad; he yelled at his little brother, who's really OK. It all made him mad, and one day he took out the anger in the 600 yard dash. He ran stupid fast. Sudden [...]

    “Stupid Fast”by Geoff Herbach“Stupid Fast” is the story of Felton Reinstein, a fifteen year old guy that is smack dab in the middle of puberty. He talks a lot of the shocking amount of hair that has cropped up all over his body, and about his feelings of anger and restlessness. When Felton is stressed ,which is a lot, he has to "move" and will channel that energy into running, lifting weights, and biking. He has a lot on his mind; his new girlfriend, the pressure to excel at a sport he h [...]

  • Stephen

    Felton Reinstein is a geeky guy with a too active mind who's dealing with a piano prodigy younger brother, an ax-hippie-chick mother that insists he call her Jerri. He's a clueless small-town boy who's confused and alarmed that his best buddy is going to Venezuela for the summer and that his body has decided to betray him by constantly growing and constantly sprouting hair. The story is charmingly told by a very clearly adolescent narrator with a overly developed sense of smell. While it starts [...]
