How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship & Musical Theater

How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship & Musical Theater - Marc Acito, Jeff Woodman Wow, I think this book was written directly AT me. By turns hilarious, poignant and absurd, it chronicles the way Edward stumbles through his senior year of high school and lurches towards Julliard. Firmly anchored in the 1984 I remember, full of fumbling and humiliating yet adventurous sexual escapades, true-life misunderstandings and completely whacko blackmail schemes, this audio book had me weeping with laughter multiple times. Not for the faint of heart, nor for those who like their lovers always in pairs, or their teens law-abiding. I loved it and considered breaking into the library tonight for the sequel. The narration is excellent. Highly recommended.
