Loved this book. Great story about learning to accept yourself for who you are. ( )

The adult characters were mostly cut from cardboard. Come to think of it, so were the kids. This was a very issue-driven book, which left little room for character development- in fact, the main character stays pretty much the same until the last 20 pages. I had a lot of trouble finding anyone to like in the book, but it was worth finishing just to see how the protagonist (whose name I've forgotten not 10 minutes after I closed the book) would inevitably wake up and smell the Hugo Boss.

K. L. Goings has once again written an excellent YA novel. This book introduces Liam Geller, who's parents are famous and his dad never fails to let his son know how much of a disappointment he is to him. Finally having had enough after one too many drunken parties, his dad kicks him out and he's sent to live with his uncle Peter who's gay, in a glam rock bank and lives in a trailer in the middle of BFE practically. Along the way,
Liam learns to accept himself how he truly is, and despite what his dad always tells him, that he isn't a screw up at all, just simply,
Liam. I definitely recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a good YA novel. ( )

Liam Geller seems to have it all. Immense popularity, good looks, a supermodel mom, a rich genius CEO dad. What he can't seem to get is his father's approval. When his dad catches Liam with a barely-clothed girl on his dad's office desk, his dad declares Liam banished from the household. Rather than live with his crodgy grandparents, Liam arranges to move in with his mom's estranged brother, the cross-dressing lead singer of a failed glam-rock cover band who lives in a trailer. "Aunt" Pete is a culture shock for Liam, but it is there that he discovers what is important. A laugh-out-loud story with characters that any high school student can relate to. ( )

This is a Gateway book for 2011-2012. I like this author and this book is good, interesting, etc. But, at the end I felt like it was just okay. Some of the characters were fun and well-written, while others felt forced or fake...an example taken to the extreme instead of a real person.

Review from Booklist:
Like her previous novels, including the Printz Honor Book Fat Kid Rules the World (2003), Going's latest is a surprising, memorable story shaped from unlikely character bonds. High-school senior Liam is a talented, straight athlete who is as gorgeous as his mother, a former supermodel, and has inherited her interest in clothes: I love fashion. And girls. A mediocre student, he constantly disappoints his dad, an angry, sometimes verbally abusive executive who kicks Liam out of the house after one too many perceived transgressions. Against his homophobic dad's wishes, Liam moves in with his gay, cross-dressing, trailer-dwelling uncle, Aunt Pete. Determined to meet his father's expectations, Liam joins the AV club at his new school and actively tries to fight his natural status as Mr. Popularity ; but once again, everything goes awry. Liam's parents occasionally feel more like caricatures than fully developed characters, but Liam and Aunt Pete are true originals, and Going balances her strong messages of self-discovery and acceptance with compassionate, bittersweet scenes that highlight the soul-sapping futility of trying to please unappeasable adults.
