Praise for Stupid Fast "A rare mix of raw honesty and hilarity. Stupid Fast is Stupid Good!" -Peter Bognanni, author of The House of TomorrowI AM NOT STUPID FUNNY.I AM STUPID FAST.My name is Felton Reinstein, which is not a fast name.

Most important, will it get me girls-especially Aleah? So I train. And I run. And I sneak off to Aleah's house in the night. But deep down I know I can't run forever. And I wonder what will happen when I finally have to stop.
