# of pages: 288
Genre: Young Adult, LGBT, Family Issues

Summary (From Amazon):
Quinn Roberts is a sixteen-year-old smart aleck and Hollywood hopeful whose only worry used to be writing convincing dialogue for the movies he made with his sister Annabeth. Of course, that was all before—before Quinn stopped going to school, before his mom started sleeping on the sofa…and before the car accident that changed everything.
Enter: Geoff, Quinn’s best friend who insists it’s time that Quinn came out—at least from hibernation. One haircut later, Geoff drags Quinn to his first college party, where instead of nursing his pain, he meets a guy—okay, a hot guy—and falls, hard. What follows is an upside-down week in which Quinn begins imagining his future as a screenplay that might actually have a happily-ever-after ending—if, that is, he can finally step back into the starring role of his own life story.
This was an overall good book. The characters were very detailed. The plot had some small issues but it was pretty enjoyable. I hope Tim Federle writes more YA books. You should definitely give this book a try.
That’s a wrap! I apologize for such brief and vague thoughts. Have you read this book? Are you going to? Let me know!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!
