August Barton could never have mentally prepared himself for his freshman year of college: not only has his anxiety increased, but his parents are divorcing, his new roommate thinks Augie is the biggest nerd in existence, and his grandma, a retired prostitute named Gertie, has taken to running away from her nursing home. Augie just wants to hole up in his dorm room with his Star Wars collectables and textbooks, but Gertie is not about to let that happen. What ensues is a crazy ride including naked trespassing, befriending a local biker gang, and maybe-just maybe-with Augie defeating his anxiety and actually getting the girl. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
August has anxiety. He is starting college, his mom is getting a divorce, and now his grandma has escaped her retirement home. This first escape changes his world in so many ways. Let me just start off by saying this story is hilarious. It was such a fun read, but I found out that it was also full of deep and serious meaning. I really have no words. It was so much fun to read and at other times it was so touching it made me want to cry. This book was just really good. It was full of humor, romance, and drama. The characters were awesome. All around it was a great story and I really enjoyed it.
