Whew, I'm old.
Well, not really. I'm not gonna retire anytime soon. Probably won't be telling kids to get off my lawn either. But still, that's all I could think about while I read this. There comes a time when you realize that the high school reality in your favorite Young Adult books isn't your reality anymore. And damn, that's sad.
Still, it's good to know good YA is and always will be enjoyable to me. And I love Simon. Sassy, theater kid trying to find the right moment to come out of the closet? If that doesn't hit close to home, I don't know what will. And sometimes even I, oh mighty destroyer of all that is fluffy, want a warm romance to bury myself in.
Me too Simon, me too.

I also wanna thank Simon for introducing me to Elliot Smith. Don't ask me why I never heard any of his songs before. Yes, it's unforgivable. Yes, I'm paying my sins by listening to everything this man has produced.
If this book had a soundtrack it would be awesome. The movie was great. I love the characters. I love the diversity.
Okay, maybe I'm really still into YA after all.
Sentence: this meme except it's me talking about LGBT Young Adult Books.
They're good books Brent.
