About this deal

This was just so much fun, I was expecting this and it didn’t disappoint at all, it delivered everything I wanted and more. The problem is, he has a heart condition that will put him under a knife in 2 months, so time is of the essence. I particularly appreciated the focus on body insecurity and how challenging it can be when you don’t look a way that society deems as attractive.

I've read plenty of books with bumbling, awkward MC's that start babbling in serious situations but this one hit all the wrong notes for me. Preferable on a channel that can be seen by everyone and not those that can afford to spend money on satellite channels. I'm not the target demographic for YA at all, but sometimes it just really hits the mark and gives me everything I'm looking for from a book. I would recommend this for fans of Simon James Green, because it's so funny, and especially the main character is hilarious.

He reminds me a bit of Stiles Stilinski from the „Teen Wolf“ series in his whole manner and God, I love him for that alone. I honestly wish I was more capable to capture with emotions all the feelings I had while reading it. In both books the main characters feel like they are missing a huge part of the story and are they desperate to find out what's happening. Yet another triumph from William Hussey, one of the most powerful and important voices we have in YA right now.

The trio had a Harry, Ron, and Hermione vibe to them, particularly in their loyalty and unwavering support for each other—although the relationship dynamics were quite different, if you catch my drift. I found the “jokes” to be forced and completely uneeded , Like the whole sex dungeon thing at the beginning …. The whole book is written in first person perspective and gives a wonderful insight into the life of the boy we accompany. This is (once again) a phenomenal book, it’s cute, it’s fun, it’s clever, it’s adorable, it’s hilarious, it’s emotional (I sobbed like a baby), it’s just EVERYTHING OKAY?What did keep me reading though was the movie making itself, and Jesse's talent was portrayed incredibly well, without it feeling unrealistic for a teenage boy to be able make and direct the movie with the help of his friends.

Das ganze Buch ist in der Ich-Perspektive geschrieben und gibt einen wundervollen Einblick in das Leben des Jungen, den wir begleiten.This did fall into the same problem that I've had with other gay romance books, in that Jesse chased a guy who was so obviously unsuitable for him, while the obvious final love interest had to wait for him to notice him until a few chapters off the end.

The mortality issue is very well dealt with and refreshing to find in the queer YA genre - it's been overlooked and William Hussey opens the theme up well. I asked myself several times how realistic it is that these young people are making this zombie film and doing it so professionally, and then I thought „Who cares, I love it and all I want is for Jesse to be happy!

There were a couple of moments throughout the book where he either mispronounced or placed the stress on an odd part of a word or sentence, but other than that it was an excellent quality audiobook. Even the brief mentions of what it felt like in recovery were enough to make me cry with feeling like I had been seen.
