The Great American Whatever

The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle  278 pp,

Quinn Roberts is about to celebrate his 17th birthday but he's not expecting much. He is still dealing with the death of his sister Annabeth in a car accident for which he feels responsible. Quinn is an aspiring film writer and his sister was the director of the short films they made. Since that time Quinn has been reclusive and unable to indulge in his passion for writing, although he continually writes scripts in his head. His best friend Geoff decides it's time for him to reenter the world and takes him to a party. It is there that the not-yet-out Quinn meets his first romance in a handsome college student named Amir. The result is bittersweet and leads to revelations that Quinn would rather not know but point him toward forging a life without his sister.
