Gene has perfect scores in everything from academics to socialization and is connected to Reagan High School's best and brightest. G.R. tells everyone his initials stand for "Goat Rapist."Twenty minutes from now, who you know is more important than what you know. And if you know the people Gene knows, you can get away with all kinds of things, like selling them the latest in personal fulfillment technology (what everyone else would call sex toys), all with G.R. providing plausible deniability. It's a perfect operation, until Ammerly Prescott, local lacrosse hooligan and Gene's nemesis, decides to run for president of the associated student body on a single platform plank: decertifying Reagan High's social network and undoing everything the boys have worked for.From the greasy afterschool hangouts to the terrifying depths of the Principal's Office, Gene and G.R. will have to tangle with Ammerly, her Bad Kid cronies, and each other as they try to keep in the running and stay connected with the right people.An Afterschool Special gone completely awry, "The Right People" is now available for the Kindle....

    I first read "The Right People" years ago and re-reading it now reminds me why I liked it so much. It is irreverent, funny, twisted and NSFW, but there runs a thread of relevance through it that calls to mind the shenanigans and conflicts of contemporary politics.It is both nostalgic of past high school years but presciently set in a future where social networking pervades and perverts social interactions between students. An optimistic future where the buying of social ratings can buy popularity but where real human relationships win out.The right people of the title are not who you think they are but about how to motivate these real right people to stand up and make changes that are needed?The words "Yes you can" pop up here as an exaltation to a school political leader - and I do wonder if it predates Obama's political slogan of 2008 - but the story certainly presaged the social networking of Obama's campaign... but with goats and sex toys... but umm not gratuitously if you can imagine that.Adam's authorial voice is unique and funny and comes from a mind as twisted and humane as this tall tale. More like this please.
