Book title and author:  The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep And Never Had To by DC Pierson

Initial thoughts: LOVED IT!

What is it about: It’s the story of a high school kid named Darren who befriends Eric, a mostly quiet guy in his class, through their mutual love for comics and video games. As they become closer friends they decided to create a comic book together. After late nights of drawing, playing video games and coming up with ideas for their comic book Eric confesses to Darren is deepest darkest secret: he doesn’t sleep. At first, it’s just the two of them who know and Darren, a fan of all things Science Fiction, loves the idea of his new best friend having a super power and tries to test his limits. Eventually, word gets out about Eric’s secret and they have to go on the run. The story is an incredible and fun tale of friendship, trust, and adventure.
Why you should read it: If you are or have ever been any sort of nerd you’ll relate to this story. If you like DC Pierson or have ever watched Derrick Comedy  you’ll enjoy the tone and sense of humor. If you don’t want to read it, the audiobook is a great option and it’s read by DC Pierson.

Why we liked it: As a fan of DC Pierson already I was super excited to read something he wrote outside of Derrick Comedy. Pierson has a way of capturing the essence of what it means to be a high school boy that is so grounded in reality even when said boy is facing powers greater than anything imaginable. His portrayal of friendships and relationships, in general, is so realistic and believable. He really captures the feeling of a lonely high schooler searching for and then finding adventure and purpose. I’ve read it and listened to the audio book and they’re both awesome ways to read it.

Where do I buy it: If you want to paperback, you can buy it here and if you’re interested in the audiobook you can get it through Audible. (It’ll be free if you haven’t used audible before!)

Bonus: There’s also a proof of concept short for the eventual movie that will come out of this book.
