Bumperhead follows Bobby a young slacker who narrates his life as it happens but offers very little reflection on the events that transpire He lives in the moment exclusively and is incapable of seeing the world outside of his experiences He comes of age in the 1970s making a rapid progression through that era's different subcultures and in a short period of time segues from a stone. Bumperhead is a coming of age novel about a boy who measures each generation of his youth by the records he listens to and the girls he fixates on It was a Seventies thing and if you grew up in the same generation as him I did then you d understand I don t know if younger kids will get some of what s going on here but I hope they hang in there anyway I found some of the parallels between this kid s youth to my own pretty eerie but it also made the book compassionate I felt Beto was speaking for me Bumperhead loses a star because he portrays aging in such a pathetic gruesome way virtually feeding into the ageism that s so prevalent these days Some of us have held up pretty well through the years Mr Hernandez
