Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp by C. D. Payne (unabridged) was produced by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see below for features list). Youth in Revolt brings us the journals of Nick Twisp, California's most precocious diarist, whose ongoing struggles to make sense out of high school, deal with his divorced parents, and lose his virginity result in his transformation from an unassuming fourteen-year-old to a modern youth in open revolt. As his family splinters, worlds collide, and the police block all routes out of town, Nick must cope with economic deprivation, homelessness, the gulag of the public schools, a competitive Type-A father, murderous canines (in triplicate), and an inconvenient hair trigger on his erectile response—all the while vying ardently for the affections of the beauteous Sheeni Saunders, teenage goddess and ultimate intellectual goad. The journals of Nick Twisp continue. . . Part II: Youth in Bondage Part III: Youth in Exile All available through Blackstone Audio Apps.
