Similar to “Me Earl and the dying girl” this book contains two male leads and one female lead, humor, soul searching and passion for an art form. In this book Wes, Corey and Ash meet at jazz camp and decide it’s just not right for them. Ditching camp, they head out on tour and play at some dives, meet some ferocious people, traumatize their parents, do drugs, have sex and learn a little bit about themselves.
It is a soul searching book. A physical and mental journey that takes these kids on a road trip filled with detours and people that reshape their thinking and make them find out new things about themselves. This novel is funny and contains extremely quotable lines, but it may not be for everyone. Mostly this might be the case because it can be vulgar, raunchy and unforgivingly honest.
If you liked “Me Earl and the dying girl” then I would recommend this read. However, just because I am recommending it doesn’t mean I love it. Unlike “ME&TDG” I didn’t love the main character and the story itself, but as usual I enjoyed the different formatting and inserts that Andrews places in his books. It makes the books more interesting and lively causing his wonderful dialogue to flow off the page. The dialogue is the main reason I loved this book because its fun, quirky and really showcases his character’s inner thoughts. This was definitely the main factor that kept me reading.
Overall though if I had to tell you which Andrews novel to read I would hands-down always recommend “ME&TDG” every time. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t look into this book, it just means that his first novel just personally resonates with me more.
You might enjoy this book if you liked “ME&TDG”, music, road trips, and male point of views. It is an easy and fast read, but not one that you will necessary fall in love with. But give it a chance if you’re into any of the things listed above.
