Sutter Keely is an unapologetic party animal. So when he meets shy, reserved Amy, he decides to take her under his wing and introduce her to the real world—at least his side of it.

It includes:

• Profanity (F-word variants, sh*t, d*ck, and p*ssy)
• Sexuality (a few explicate sex scenes, references to erections, masturbation, condoms, porn, tampons, and balls)
• Reference to a twenty year old having sex with a fourteen year old
• Violence (fistfight, slapping someone, a car wreck, and a broken arm)
• Lots of teenaged drinking and drunkenness
• A man is addicted to inhaling gasoline fumes and dies from it
• Teens smoke cigarettes and marijuana

The Spectacular Now is a hilarious and, at times, sad portrayal of the life of a wild, partying teenager. The story is full of profanity, sex, drinking, and drugs, all revolving around the main character.
