When the picture tells the story…
Senior year is almost over, and Jamie Peterson has a big problem. Not college—that's all set. Not prom—he'll find a date somehow. No, it's the worst problem of all: he's fallen for his best friend.
As much as Jamie tries to keep it under wraps, everyone seems to know where his affections lie, and the giggling girls in art class are determined to help Jamie get together with Mason. But Jamie isn't sure if that's what he wants—because as much as Jamie would like to come clean to Mason, what if the truth ruins everything? What if there are no more road trips, taco dinners, or movie nights? Does he dare risk a childhood friendship for romance?
This book is about what happens when a picture reveals what we can't say, when art is truer than life, and how falling in love is easy, except when it’s not. Fan Art explores the joys and pains of friendship, of pressing boundaries, and how facing our worst fears can sometimes lead us to what we want most.
I read this whole book, in one bath. So just under 2 hours, because I wanted to read the whole thing in one sitting. So I did. And yeah, it was just good, so funny! And yeah, it'd been forever since I read the synopsis, so I had no idea what this book was about, or that it had a male narrator till a few pages in. But figuring that out was nice!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was entertaining, it was sweet, and it ended in a really nice place, and while I wouldn't mind spending more time with these characters, I don't have to, because the treads were all nicely tied up, and yeah, that was just great!
The whole thing with Jamie adding in the one comic that was voted out, with my personal craziness, I worried that something much worse would happen. Well, what happened was pretty bad, but it could've been worse, seeing as he wasn't expelled!
Really enjoyed his and Mason's relationship, that Jamie didn't want to ruin it, because being best friends since they were young, and then dating? That doesn't work out too well in boy-girl couples, let alone boy-boy ones! And that the time they spent, was Mason seeing how they'd do with people thinking they were a couple, that was just so cute!
Yeah, this was a pretty fantastic, nice, light, book! Really enjoyed it so much!
