The last book I read this weekend was How I Paid For College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship, and Music Theater by Marc Acito. It's the story of Eddie, an actor in high school who wants to go to Julliard, but whose father decides he's not going to pay for it. He and his friends dream up more and more illegal ways to get the money, each of which is doomed to failure. Imagine American Pie crossed with Fame. Only gayer. That would be this book. It was funny, even making me laugh out loud a couple of times. "I can't fucking believe it. In the last eight months we've engaged in underage drinking, reckless driving, illegal drug use (on federal property), unlocking and entering, blackmail, fraud, forgery, and embezzlement, and we're getting nailed for grand theft Buddha." It wasn't deep or anything, but it was definitely entertaining.
