I think he would enjoy this book because it isn’t as disgusting as the first book “Swim the Fly” and, Andy is open to all genres of books and I think that he would like it.
E 1 2 Feb 28, It continued the story of the three boys very well. Calame nails the language and thought processes of younger teenaged males. Fast-paced and at times, totally raunchy, this one already has whots waiting list in my classroom.
But after his parents announce that they are having another baby and there is no money for a bigger house, Sean decides to sign on as screenwriter to avoid moving into his mean twin sister?

So, Don Calame, a fourth book, please? Jan 31, Jamie rated it liked it Recommended to Jamie by: Quite the opposite, there is just enough humor, heart and action to keep the reader interested.
Apr 01, Terry rated it really liked it Shelves: You would think that these things would be uncomfortable to read through, but the author has a way with words that just makes them hilarious. Either way, it is funny and plays like a good guy-centered comedy. Coop convinces Sean and Matt to join him in a scheme that he guarantees will reward them with more than enough cash to put an extension on Sean’s house.
Each entry in this trilogy takes the first-person viewpoint of one of the trio of characters.
Call the Shots
The plot is as hilarious as ever, filled with laugh-out-loud scenes and painful embarrassments. Inspired by Your Browsing History. His twisted sister, Cathy, taunts him even more with barbs about his sexuality, insisting tha Call the Shots is the final book of the trilogy that calaje with Swim the Fly.
I would have liked to know more about his troubled past. It is ths a heavy heart that I bid good-bye to the characters in the Swim the Fly series. Cathy is the one who is coming out– hoping that if Sean was too it would be easier on the family.
The characters were, as always, very redeeming and very likable for the most part. I love the characters and how they treat each other but there’s a whole lot of raunchy, dirty boy humor going on. This series was a great break from all of the heavy, intense stuff I always read. Feb capl, Joey Reyes rated it it was amazing Shelves: I chose this book because I have already read the third book in the series “Swim the Fly”.
CALL THE SHOTS by Don Calame | Kirkus Reviews
He decides this school year he’s going to get some friends together and make a horror film. The story of friendship is really something that I will take away from this series, and I think the author did a brilliant job of displaying such a tight-knit cwlame of boys.

Sean with Coop’s un-help gets himself into so many mortifying situations shts debacles that you just can’t help but want things to work out better for him. Unfortunately Sean’s a little bummed about a few things– namely that his mother is going to have a baby leaving him to room with his twin sister who is going through a Goth So sad that this series is xhots, but a great note to end it on.
While the characters are far more eloquent and witty than sbots teens, Calame captures the young male mindset in a way not often seen in fiction and despite the strong but realistic language, there are a lot of redeeming qualities. While the other titles came first, they aren’t necessary to enjoying this entry. He was easy to relate too, and easy to feel sorry for. Even with the serious stuff, this book was laugh out loud funny and it was always entertaining. Several laugh-out-loud funny moments, and I’m almost disappointed that I couldn’t wait for the audio since the other audios of the other two books are greatbut this is a fantastic end to the series and an easy sell to high-school boys.
Sean and Matt are really not excited about Coop’s newest adventure, but Sean changes his mind when he comes home and learns his mother’s big news.
I really enjoyed the book and I thought that I would really enjoy this book too. If you knew me really well you’d have known this was coming, because I really really hate endings. And they’ve been through so much together, and the thing about it is, they were together. Don Calame is coming to town for a festival in September so it seemed like we should get ready by reading one of his books, right?
Naturally, complications ensue, as Sean inadvertently becomes linked romantically with a possibly psychotic ninth-grader, while trying to nurture a relationship with Leyna, a hot classmate, and fend off advances from Vall
His twisted sister, Cathy, taunts him even more ca,l barbs about his sexuality, insisting that he is gay and should come out.
This is no small matter: At some points of the book i wanted to slap Evelyn.
Maybe for insight into the minds of teenage boys?
