I laughed...and laughed...and laughed, and my husband came in the room to ask if I was okay. So, yes, it was hysterical and I really LOVED Paul...was he over the top at times? Perhaps, but, you know what, he felt real
to me. From the first line...he was himself. Clumsy, rambling, shy, awkward, lets his mind run a million miles an hour, is insecure, but sweet and loyal.
He had a wonderful friend (though I woulda slapped Helena a few times...:) )
His parents were fantastic! I mean that first conversation on the phone I'm not gonna quote cuz I'm too lazy to search for it, but I'm paraphrasing his father "You are just as good as them other homosexuals in there. Better, even."
Loved the fam. Loved crazy Nana and her homophobic-yet-not bird Johnny Depp.
I liked Vince, I liked that he, like Paul, wasn't some picture of perfection.
This book made me laugh and cry and cringe and my heart broke for Sandy and for Vince, and yes, for Paul.
I loved it.
