this is my first tour stop I have ever hosted *exiting* so I hope I don't mess up... Thank you Sweetwater Press for giving me this book to read and review. I loved it!

the book:
Copernicus H. Stringfellow, a.k.a. Nick, is not your run-of-the-mill genius. His mind is so powerful it can stop a speeding automobile or stem internal bleeding. As Nick goes about quietly doing good, he discovers that his powers are greatly enhanced by the nutrients present in Twinkies. (summary from GoodReads)

my review:
This book was hilarious! Nick is this hero that could also be your best friend. He is the smartest guy you'll ever meet, but he is also the one of the nicest people alive. He could be multimillionair, but prefers to spend his money on people he doesn't know. Also, he can, just like Roald Dahl's Mathilda, move things with telekinesis *move things w/ his thoughts*, and that is just epic awesomeness! With his superpowers he does not become evil or something. He decides to make this world a better place.
Then you find out that his superpowers come from twinkies, and the first thing I wanted to do after I found that out was put away the book and eat a twinkie to test if it worked with me. But too bad, in the Netherlands we don't have twinkies ;c
The story is told from numerous points of view, and that kept the story interesting, but it made the story also a little bit confusing. I sometimes had no idea why some parts were written there, I did not know what they had to do with the main story. Later it all became clear. 

This book is a quick, easy and hilarious read everyone will love. I seriously need some twinkies now...
