Do not judge this book by its cover. Recommended by our new teen/young adult specialist, this was a fully engaging read with minimal horse action. Finn is a young man who starts the book towards of the end of his junior year in high school. He's not very sexually experienced but his best friend has a special arrangement with a German exchange student that involves money and out-of-the way places. Finn's father wrote a science fiction book that has attracted a fairly large cult following, and the protagonist of that book is also named Finn. Finn measures time in the number of miles the earth travels around the sun - approximately 20 miles every second. Thus, the title is a reference to something that happened in five seconds. This book was funny, smart, sensitive, and honest. There is drinking and sex and it's not preachy. One of the outstanding books of 2014 and a semifinalist for a National Book Award.
