The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp
I read this book because it is on a list of books to read before the movies come out. It starts out with a sort of Ferris Buhler feel. Sutter is a happy go lucky, usually drunk high school senior who loves life. Then his girlfriend breaks up with him and he begins going out with Aimee - just to boost her confidence. In the end, he does boost her confidence, but he is still drinking to find happiness, which is just sad. It will be interesting to see how they change it as a movie.
