initially i wanted to read this because i'd heard the author got his inspiration from the patty griffin song 'tony' and any patty griffin fan gets my attention!
in the end this book didn't really have a lot to do with tony, either the song or character, but it was quite funny and cute.
the only problem that i had was it just comes across as trying too hard. i understand that it's set in a "gay utopia" but too often it reads like a teen hipster's notebook.
still, i enjoyed it and i'm keen to read something else by david levithan.
