The Great American Whatever by Tim Federle

The Great American Whatever bookcoverCheck out the eAudiobook on the library Overdrive page. Quinn Roberts is a sixteen-year-old smart aleck who is used to make movies with his sister Annabeth. He used to be fun and go out with his friends, he used to do a lot of things. Of course, that was all before—before Quinn stopped going to school, before his mom started sleeping on the sofa…and before Annabeth was killed in a car accident. Luckily his best friend Geoff has decided it is time for Quinn to rejoin the living.

This is a good book for anyone with the grief of losing a loved one and the guilt that comes with feeling responsible. Along with grief, a big part of this book is struggling with homosexuality and coming out. This book is great for anyone struggling with this. It also has the writer/movie director aspect to it that would appeal to anyone with a similar interest.
