About this deal

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. A wonderful turn on a coming-of-age bucket list story with the twist of open heart surgery juxtaposed against making a zombie movie. It was for me predictable at times and I knew certain things from the get go but I still enjoyed the ride and getting to know the characters on a deeper level. I need to get myself to an event where he’s signing because I really need my proof signed to make it even more special than it already is. The whole foreshadowing of what was going to happen was all very much in your face which kind of ruined the reading experience for me as I pretty much was reading waiting for my expectations to be met and they eventually were.

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? This is a heartfelt (pun intended), heart warming (sorry I'll stop), heart wrenching (okay I'm done for real) story of self-esteem, courage, achievement, friendship, and above all, love. Aber nicht nur Jesse, auch all die anderen Charakter sind mir ins Herz gewachsen und ich bin sicher, das ich da nicht die Einzige bin. 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!I've only ever read one other book of William Hussey (shame on me) and reading this book had me thinking about Hideous Beauty more than once. I'm currently not in the mood (or state) for to heavy and dark stuff, so I really appreciate books like this one. Morgan was so relatable too, once again her love for performance but also how she views herself as not enough.

They were interesting characters with their own challenges so would have been nice to spend even more time with them.

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. The fact that these teenagers made an incredible film whilst all battling with their personal concerns and worries was truly inspiring. On the other hand, this book is a rom-com and not a thriller, and every reader would be mad when the main character didn't end up with the affectionate guy he deserves.

But Hussey skillfully weaves in a more serious undercurrent, while still keeping the overall tone light, and doesn't overlook the challenges faced by young LGBTQ+ people today. His latest books include the highly-anticipated KILLING JERICHO (April 2023), the first in a brand new series featuring crime fiction's first Traveller detective, and the acclaimed political thriller for teens, THE OUTRAGE. Das englische Hörbuch hat die Stimmung der Geschichte perfekt aufgegriffen und Chris Nelson hat Jesse und allen anderen so viel Charakter gegeben, dass ich mich ein wenig in seine Stimme verliebt habe. But I promise you once you start reading and see thru Jesse's eyes, the eyes of a frightened boy not only of what needs to be done to him, but how society will judge him afterwards you will understand. I listened to the audiobook version of this story, narrated by Chris Nelson, who delivered an exceptional performance bringing these wonderful characters to life.The book definitely captured the fears of being a teenager and how certain things lose their importance when you are facing open heart surgery.
