Freaks and bullies, classes and crushes, this is high school. Starting high school is never easy. Seniors take your lunch money. Girls you've known forever are suddenly beautiful and unattainable. And you can never get enough sleep. Could there be a worse time for Scott's mother to announce she's pregnant? Scott decides high school would be a lot less overwhelming if it came with a survival manual, so he begins to write down tips for his new sibling. Meanwhile, he's trying his best to capture the attention of Julia, the freshman goddess. In the process, Scott manages to become involved in nearly everything the school has to offer. So while he tries to find his place in the confusing world of high school, win Julia's heart, and keep his sanity, Scott will be recording all the details for his sibling's--and your--enjoyment. Read the companion novel Sophomores and Other Oxymorons coming August 2015

Reviews and Accolades for "Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie"
An ALA Best Book for Young Adults
A BCCB Blue Ribbon Book
[A] fresh, genuinely funny picture of an earnest yet hapless teen . . .A solidly enjoyable read sprinkled with laughs, puzzles, a few groans, some oh-I-get-it nods, and generally good geeky fun throughout." "BCCB"
" . . . plenty of amusing, accurate observations about freshman life, from the insecurities of first dates to the dangers of walking the hall between classes." "Booklist"
"Lessons are learned, humor mixed with sadness is prevalent, and the bittersweet year comes to a satisfying end for both the reader and Scott." "VOYA"
." . . hilarious . . . Scott's character arc is extremely satisfying . . . Lubar's language use and writing style are deceptively simple. The teen's physical and emotional tumult is as clear, familiar, and complex as high school itself." "SLJ""
