I'm waffling between 2 and 3 stars on this one.

There is much humor that I think the target audience will appreciate, but it's, well, not very smart humor. That sounds a strange thing to say, given that the humor is meant to be crude and scatological, that I might expect it to not be dumb, but I do. There is some great, intelligently crude, scatological humor in similar books that press the same funny bone in much more clever, deft, sarcastic, and even challenging ways. This always goes for the tired, obvious, easy joke: boys like boogers and hate girls categorically; cops operate out of doughnut shops; etc. The subtle, ironic social commentary that should operate behind the humor is absent. And the storytelling, wordsmithing, characterizations, and such are just as blunt. It could have been so much better.

Still, I do think the target audience will have fun with it and consider it more than just okay. So, from their perspective, 3 stars.
