Jason Mulgrew, popular blogger and author of Everything Is Wrong with Me, continues his depreciating yet hilarious self-reflection with 236 Pounds of Class Vice President.
Set in Mulgrew’s high school years, this genuine and honest memoir revisits his teenage antics and escapades as he, while navigating the indignity of puberty, attempts to run for vice president of the student body, displays a penchant for long fur capes, and (naturally) wonders about sex.
Mulgrew’s blog, Everything Is Wrong with me, has received more than 200 million hits since its inception in 2004. Complete with awkward, “what was he thinking?” photos—unmitigated proof of Mulgrew’s ungainly adolescence—236 Pounds of Class Vice President is an no-holds-barred yet tender look at the years some of us would rather forget.
A quick, funny read
I found this book a bit funnier than Mulgrew's last. I read it in about 2 nights- so in about 4 hours. I wish it had been longer but what he did write was 90% entertaining. He goes into a lot of detail (sometimes too much?) but there are some REALLY funny revelations and he captures being a big, lovable dweeb really well. I've always enjoyed his blog so I knew what to expect. It's not going to win a Pulitzer but its a perfect book for a cross-country plane ride or the elliptical.
