Janesville, Wisconsin (cold in the sense that there is no God)

1994

The worst thing that’s ever happened to Craig is also the best: Amy. Amy and Craig never should’ve gotten together. Craig is an awkward, Dungeons & Dragons-playing geek, and Amy is the beautiful, fiercely intelligent student-body president of their high school.

Yet somehow they did. Until Amy dumped him. Then got back together with him. Then dumped him again. Then got back together with him again. Over and over and over.

Unfolding during their senior year, Amy and Craig’s exhilarating, tumultuous relationship is a kaleidoscope of joy, pain, and laughter as an uncertain future-and adult responsibility-loom on the horizon.

Craig fights for his dream of escaping Janesville and finding his place at a quirky college, while Amy’s quest to uncover her true self sometimes involves being Craig’s girlfriend?and sometimes doesn’t.

Seven heartbreaks. Seven joys.Told nonsequentially, acclaimed playwright Don Zolidis’s debut novel is a brutally funny, bittersweet taste of the utterly unique and utterly universal experience of first love.


Review

4 Stars

This quirky YA Contemporary will take you back to your first high school boyfriend/girlfriend and remind you of all the uncertainty that came with it. The Seven Torments of Amy and Craig is a uniquely written contemporary that takes you back and forth between the past and present, from the first break up to the last break up, and the people you’ll meet along the way.

Craig is your typical teenage boy who loves dungeons and dragons, and comic books. He is the awkward kid with the awkward friends who never thought he’d get the popular girl, the smart girl. Craig is such a fun character to read because he speaks without thinking, has a love/hate relationship with his twin sister who just so happens to be the complete opposite of him, and finds himself in a relationship he never thought would happen.

Amy is on the road to valedictorian of their high school and has the smarts to go to any college she chooses. She looks like she has everything on the outside but at home she doesn’t feel like she meets her parents expectations, and this is why she excels herself so much in her academics.

Take a journey through the ups and downs as Amy and Craig try to navigate the crazy world of teenage love while also trying to figure out what they want to do with their futures. There are also many many laughs along the way with touches of that teenage angst.

    1. I loved him too!! I kind of liked the fact that they don’t end up together. I think that’s different than the usual live happily ever after. It was such a fun book and the tone of the writing was perfect! There were so many hilarious moments & Craig’s inner monologue was the best!
