Fat Boy vs. the Cheerleaders | [Geoff Herbach]

Fat Boy vs. the Cheerleaders

From "one of the most real, honest, and still funny male voices to come around in a while" (YALSA) comes a brand-new cast of quirky characters, pitting fat boy Gabe against the high school cheerleading team in a battle over control of the school's soda machine. The war is on! Never have the stakes been so high. Never have the trenches been so deep. Never has one soda vending machine been so vital. When the high school cheerleading team takes over the machine's funds previously collected by the pep band, Gabe will not stand for it.

    "Fat Boy vs the Cheerleaders by Geoff Herbach"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I read and loved Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach and listening to this Amazing Audiobook for the Hub Challenge was a treat. Chunk also known as Gabe has a great voice- he snarls, balks, teases and most of all loves band. When his summer band camp is stopped due to no funds, Chunk raises his voice, leads a rally, loses weight (due to his grandfather and stress)and gets the girl. I totally loved Nick Podehl’s narration, he had the best voices for everyone and gave the story depth and humor, highly recommended if you are looking for a humorous read!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chunk was great!


    What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

    His narration made Chunk believable, funny, angry and a hero and leader.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    High School Band Triumphs!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved Nick's voices!!!

    "Uncomfortably Real"

    Fat Boy was an uncomfortably accurate look at what it’s really like to be an overweight teenager.

    This element hit me in particularly hard but the author pulled no punches when it came to the pain of isolation, inequality, bullying, broken families and dissolving friendships in high school either.

    Credit to Herbach for having the guts to be so confronting but it didn’t exactly make for a pleasant read.

    I would have like the plot to be a little stronger, a little more inspiring, a little more mythic.

    Basically, I wish Fat Boy had been a little more fiction and a little less reality.

    It was definitely well written and impactful – both great things and rare quantities in YA lit.

    But I struggled with to get through the challenging subject matter and I’m struggling to recommend something I personally enjoyed so little.
