Growing up Wired

While on his computer, Victor Hastings admires the provocative pictures of girls he's dating. Meanwhile, these girls are posting more and more on Facebook and all the social sites. Now, all the young men in his cramped fraternity are competing for the attention of these online, amateur pinups. And the institution of the college fraternity itself is beginning to be threatened by this emerging, online phenomenon that, in the fall of 2007, has yet to be identified as "Social Media." Three women will make an impact on Victor. Erin Masters is an alluring yet naïve co-ed. Despite outward modesty, she has no reservations about letting friends plaster her provocative images across various social websites. Emily Green-Portsmith comes from wealth and is comparatively more aware of her effect on young men, both on and offline. Technological reliance, however, does not sit well with the house mother of these fraternity boys. She is affectionately known as Ma Red. This feisty, former Vietnam correspondent from the old-school of etiquette and discipline is prepared to make a fight for her traditional values. And throughout these technological and romantic discoveries, Victor wonders: What kind of love is this? ... the wired kind. He explores the pharmaceutical, social and sexual habits of the digital age. Pills are popped, rebellions spark - a young man matures against a set of difficulties unknown to generations past. Can Victor find meaning in the close sensations of a woman from the real world?

Sir I wouldn't sleep up the butt over that beagle, see he's mine and we gave him beans last night.
Great writing, love the rambling speech of the Can Man. Your dialogue is lyrical and humorous.
Well this books seems good, I'm intrigued as to why he's following a homeless man around campus to ward of boredom. That's a little cruel/creepy dude.
Some people need to know the difference between your and you're...
#no_offence :p
The humor really powers this narrative, along with memorable characters and college-aged madness that really does take me back. voted.
Everything appears to be falling to pieces. On a completely different topic, Ma Red seems like a likable character in her own way.
