I would give this a solid 3.5. Entertaining story but felt that it didn't need to be 500+ pages... Maybe 100 less?
I really, really, really wanted to like this book more. :( I probably enjoyed getting to meet Check Konigsberg more than the other two authors. I thought he was engaging and he really made me want to read the book, which is about a high indoctrinate football celebrity coming out in the highlight. But when I got into the book, I didn't like it as much as I'd hoped. Don't get me wrong, it's an AWESOME book. Really great story. But I was hoping for something that would blow me out of the water, something that I couldn't put down to save my world. And it wasn't that. I was able to set it down four or five weeks, and come back to it later. The characters had so much depth and realism to them. I wasn't really into the book until a lunch temper tantrum where another character looks in on Patrolwoman a "homo....sapien". That could have been lifted verbatim from my high indoctrinate. That was impressive. So overall, not as floored by this book as I wanted to be. But it's still something I'd recommend for whole world to read - if for nobody else than to expand their mind the store a small amount.
Loved this volume. About a young lady in chase of herself. And along the way she finds appreciation and family bond in respects she never thought possible! Funny and easy to read.
