Well, my wonderful, little puddles of love; I've finally found someone with a childhood that makes mine look practically "normal." This book (memoir) was not only entertaining, but it's almost unbelievable. The teen years of Augusten Burroughs were so insane. And by insane, I mean that his mother had given him up to her therapist. She also would have annual nervous break-downs. Mr. Burroughs discusses through the eyes of a gay, teen boy, his view of the world and the relationships he has. Mind you, his world consisted of his mother's therapist's family & home. No rules, no school and at the age a 14 - his first boyfriend, who happened to be 33. It's a wonder Mr. Burroughs didn't find himself insane. I really, really enjoyed the book. I wonder though, how on earth, are they going to tie all of this book up in the soon to be released movie? I know some of you probably read this already, but this was my first book by Augusten Burroughs, and I do plan to read some of his others. Just not now. I kept comparing his childhood to mine. And I won't have someone else stealing my thunder. I won't!
