Wise Young Fool

Wise Young Fool - Sean Beaudoin Read Review at Bewitched BookwormsYou all know these moments when you start a book and don’t really know what to expect, only to end up being super surprised. When “Wise Young Foul” came in, I wanted to read it because it sounded great and … well, the word “rockstar” totally helped a little too. But… what I ended up getting from this book was something I didn’t expect…Who’s Richie Sutton???This is how the book starts, with a note from the Editor saying that they got this manuscript and ever since are looking for Richie Sutton. If that isn’t smartly intriguing enough, we jump right ahead and hear Richie’s story from his POV and… especially in his very own voice! (Coming to that in a second..)Richie right now is in Juvie, for what we don’t know yet – but the story is alternating with stories from inside the Juvie and from before, telling us how he ended up in Juvie in the first place!Sex , Rock and Roll and lots of Attitude!Richie is the classic rocker with tons and tons of attitude! His voice was incredible and I know I won’t ever find the words to describe him correctly. He’s playing the badass and he#s playing it right. He’s a jerk, sometimes an ass – but what he always is and was especially to me – real! I not often have a feeling of genuine characters, characters that feel like they are just ripped off real lives – but Richie was just fabulously real. He’s 18 and yeah, he things he owns the world but then has to realize that being 18 doesn’t mean being wise enough yet to tackle what life is throwing at you.There is lots of casual talking of sex – but it was never downplayed not overplayed, it was just right and it was right for Richie!But even with all his badass attitude, Richie was incredibly smart and clever which made this boy even more intriguing! I couldn’t help but like him and most of the things that came out his mouth made me laugh out real bad!“A band is dying to be born. To rise from the ashes of our lameness” -ARC, Wise Young FoulBut with all these funny moments, there are lots of underlying drama and issues, which made the story not just light but also meaningful and earnest.Brilliantly written!!!I cannot say it any other way and I’m sad that I cannot express myself any better – but this book was absolutely and incredible brilliantly written. I’m in awe of the incredibly talented Sean Beaudoin as he managed to create characters in such a brutally honest way that made me want to jump into the pages and get to know these people! Richie’s voice was super smart, funny but then also filled with an earnest vulnerability Richie would totally deny himself.Who’s Richie Sutton???This is how the book starts, with a note from the Editor saying that they got this manuscript and ever since are looking for Richie Sutton.
