“Sometimes, late at night in the hotel room, after the lights have gone out and the mistakes have already been made, when it is heavy and silent and still, I lie awake and listen to my pulse on the pillow. . .”
“Imagine you are on a tour bus, the miles whistling away beneath you as you sleep. Tomorrow you will wake up in downtown Somewhere. It doesn’t matter. All the skylines look the same. Time is only marked by events. The world is on a first-name basis with you.
But you . . . you barely even know yourself.
There are those who give in completely to the idea of what it means to be famous. And those who can’t ever seem to leave the past behind. Life is a deep and contemplative story stuck on repeat- love, loss, self-destruction, self-discovery.
If you could go back to the way things were before you made it . . . would everything still be gray?”
Early last year, I became a huge fan of Pete Wentz and his band, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy. It wasn’t until I was looking to see if my local library had any of their albums that I discovered this book.
When I read the summary of it, it drew me in right away. When I started to read the book, I could not put it down. It was that good! The way the author wrote it was done perfectly. I could relate to a lot of the things that were mentioned in the book as I had gone through some of the same experiences in my personal life. I also liked how the author put a lot of his own personal experiences in it.
After I read it, I knew I had to get a copy for myself. I looked at all of my local bookstores and everywhere I knew that sold books but they never seemed to have it. It wasn’t until my birthday that I found it. Since I bought it, I have read it 3 or 4 more times and whenever I’m not reading it, it sits on my bookshelf where I can see it along with all of my other favorite books.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, no matter what kind of books you like to read. I think you will all enjoy it!
