Review - Ramp Rat by CC Standish

Book Cover

Year Published: 2017
Genre: Humour; Contemporary

Gen X malcontent Conrad Jacoby is rapidly approaching the big 2-0. Although the rebellious scamp has skated by on minimum wage jobs throughout his teens, Conrad is now in search of a more meaningful pathway into his 20s to supplement the stagnant doldrums of mid ‘90s Minnesota. After landing a baggage-handling job at the airport, Conrad hits the ground running as the challenge of learning a new craft mirrors the struggles in his personal life. As he navigates difficult relationships with both his parents and long-time girlfriend—Minnie, Conrad uses his new trade to rise above the everyday frustrations and push forward into adulthood in this rollicking New Adult comedy.

My Take on the Book:
This book took me right back to the atmosphere of the first book, it has the same humour, with Conrad Jacoby having to make his way through the adult world. I got an ARC in exchange for an honest review and gave this book a five star rating. 

Last Word:
I'm glad that another book from this author came out; with this book, Conrad has a more mature outlook, which you got glimpses of throughout the book. The book had a very pleasant ending.
