“I was a bad kid. I didn’t realize it at the time, however, now that I think about it I really was a bad kid. On the outside, I was just a boy from Kansas growing up in the 80s, trying to mousse my mullet to its fullest potential and tight roll my jeans like all the other cool kids. On the inside though, my brain worked like a maniacal tyrant, hell bent on getting whatever I wanted. I concocted crafty plans unseen from any other child my age and carried them out with incredible professionalism and finesse. Narrated by me, these are my personal stories in “I was a Bad Kid: The True Tales of a Deceptive Child.”
Be prepared to laugh as I share the details of how Huey Lewis made me call 911, or learn a lesson on how to get your friend’s girlfriend to kiss you instead. See just how much I tortured my poor mom’s cooking, and what scam I came up with in order to get a shiny new 8-bit Nintendo. Lastly, watch the chaos unfold and see how one simple afternoon caused me to completely destroy my parents’ living room—all due to some checkers and my best friend.
It’s nostalgic. It’s fun. It’s hysterical. It’s “I was a Bad Kid: The True Tales of a Deceptive Child.”
This book is too short! At times it was funny and did make me think back to when I was a kid in the 90s, although to be fair I never called 999 on my Mum! This is a really short book and I think it should be a lot longer as I can tell there are so many more stories to be told, but hopefully there will be a sequel! This is an easy and quick read especially if you don’t want to read something that takes a lot of concentration.
Next book: World War One: History In An Hour by Rupert Colley
