That Stupid Idiot

That Stupid Idiot by IncapableDreams
I just wanted to sleep through Sex Ed class, but it doesn't seem that he was going to let me. Then he claims that I'm a stalker, decides to sit with me at my lovely loner table, and plants himself right into my life. So much for staying a loner.

Ciara Thinks: That Stupid Idiot is a story that draws in the reader with the unfolding relationship of Susan and Justin from classmates in Sex Ed class to friends. Though Justin holds the infamous title of 'School's Most Popular' and he has the two-faced Queen Bee, Natalie, for a girlfriend, he's actually a nice friendly person. Susan herself is a strong lead with a distinctive voice. She isn't the typical intelligent loner as she struggles with school and often argues her point, even with the teachers, frequently landing her in trouble (and detention). Though the main characters are well developed, the supporting characters feel a little flat to start and take a while to flesh out, most of this occurs around the story's climax. That Stupid Idiot is very funny in places, causing me to laugh out loud (including one incident where the laptop screen became covered in orange juice). The character of Mrs Rod, Justin's mum provides a lot of comic relief throughout with her comments and odd behavior. IncapableDreams has an impressive style of writing that flows easily. Though there are quite a few grammar and spelling mistakes, they do not detract from the story as a whole. That Stupid Idiot is completed and although it exceeds thirty chapters, they are of a reasonably short length that makes it easy to devour this story in a few sittings.
