Food, girls, and other things Andy can’t have

Food, Girls, and Other Things I Can't Have by Allen Zadoff306.4 pounds.  NOT 307.  That’s how much Andy Zansky weighs on the first day of his sophomore year.  He expects it to be pretty much a repeat of his freshman experience: hanging with his best friend Eytan doing Model UN, having luck with no girls whatsoever, and trying to avoid being abused by a jerk named Ugo. 

But then, the weekend before school starts, he meets beautiful April at a wedding being catered by his mother, a specialist in creating mini-food for any special occasion.  When April shows up as a new student at school, Andy’s focus becomes getting her to notice him, and maybe even fall in love at second sight.  Unfortunately, a gym-class incident involving Andy, a misplaced soccer kick and his size XXXL underwear pretty much puts an end to that dream.  Until football tryouts.

Will being a member of the team finally give Andy a chance to be popular?  Can football notoriety erase April’s memory of the underwear incident?  Will Andy fall victim to the deliciousness of his mother’s mini-pies?

This book is a consistently funny, quick read that I recommend if you want a good laugh.  Check out Food, girls, and other things I can’t have by Allen Zadoff, now available a the library.
