This is a cleverly written book, and the readers are outstanding. I wish Tiny's musical were real so I could see it now that I've heard some of the songs. The book looks at the problems of love and friendship in a high school setting. However I have to warn conservative readers that one of the book's threads is about homosexual love. It's tastefully done, but it's there. If that's going to bother you, read one of the authors' other books.
There are not enough stars available to rate this book. I have had the book for several months and I have listened to it three times now and would have no problems listening to it again! The story of Thom and his adventures for self-acceptance is a great journey that anyone could relate to. Perry Moore's writing was engaging, enlightening, gut-wrenching, and soul solidifying. I laughed out loud. I cried uncontrollably. The story runs the gambit of emotions and takes you on a super adventure. Though I am a comic book junkie, don't let that disuade you from experiencing this tale. Michael Urie's narration was phenomenal. Seriously, I am having a hard time trying to express just how great this book is. Images, twists, and plots keep rushing in and I just want to tell you about Scarlett, Larry, Ruth, Justice, and so forth. I won't, but I will encourage to read or listen to this book if you want to embark on a spellbinding (as Stan Lee so eloquently states it) journey. I love this book!!
