Quinn Roberts is a sixteen-year-old smart aleck and Hollywood hopeful whose only worry used to be writing convincing dialogue for the movies he made with his sister Annabeth. Of course, that was all before—before Quinn stopped going to school, before his mom started sleeping on the sofa…and before Annabeth was killed in a car accident.

Enter Geoff, Quinn’s best friend who insists it’s time that Quinn came out—at least from hibernation. One haircut later, Geoff drags Quinn to his first college party, where instead of nursing his pain, he meets a guy—a hot one—and falls hard. What follows is an upside-down week in which Quinn begins imagining his future as a screenplay that might actually have a happily-ever-after ending—if, that is, he can finally step back into the starring role of his own life story.

Why I’m Waiting

Tragedy turned love story with LGBT characters? YES YES YES!


What has you guys waiting this week? Let me know down below!

Until next time,

  1. OMG!! So many levels of YAS!!! I’ve added it to my TBR as well. I love the premise and also the concept of the MC needing to take charge of his own life, to be the leading man in his life! So GOOOD!! I love this new feature Jesse! So cool!
