Denis Cooverman didn't want to give a typical graduation speech, cherishing memories and embracing challenges and crap. So, instead, he stood up in front of his 512 class-mates and their 3,000 relatives and said some-thing really important:
"I love you, Beth Cooper."
It would have been such a sweet, romantic moment. Except that:
Beth, the head cheerleader, has only the vaguest idea who Denis is.
And Denis, the captain of the debate team, is so far out of her league he is barely even the same species.
And then there's Kevin, Beth's remarkably large boyfriend, in town on furlough from the United States Army.
Denis comes of age overnight in this exhilar-ating, endearing novel that reminds us why we can't wait to escape high school but can never leave it behind.

Larry Doyle (a former writer for "Beavis and Butthead" and "The Simpsons") brings his comedic genius to the novel with this story of one nerd's dream come true--spending graduation night with head cheerleader Beth Cooper. Fans of the movie will recognize the voice of Paul Rust, who portrayed geeky valedictorian Denis Cooverman in the 2009 film of the same title. Rust delivers this humorous and sometimes-outrageous account, told from Denis's point of view, in a mostly straightforward manner. He saves his more dramatic efforts for the antics of Beth's friends and boyfriend, allowing the satirical tone to come mainly from the bizarre set of circumstances that emerge during the last--and greatest--night of high school.
