With or Without You by Brian Farrey, a review by Cece07

Title: With or Without You
Author:  Brian Farrey
Price: $8.99

Format: Soft cover

Evan Weiss is gay.  And so is his friend Davis.  And they are just being themselves. But when they decide to act--whether or not they should join a "group" called the chasers, they get a major school beating and decide at the speed of stupid that they should join the chasers.

Erik, (Evan's boyfriend) explained to Evan that the speed of stupid is deciding a decision at the split second with out thinking it through. And that cost Erik, Davis, and Evan a lot of time, effort, and pain. Erik starts questioning," Why were you acting so weird last night?" "Are you okay?" Finally he lies, ( of course) and keeps hiding his thoughts and feelings. But when it all catches up to him, he is forced to make a choice. Eric or Davis?

I thought it was a really good book.  It has you jumping out of your seat and screaming at one point.  I thought it was well-thought out, as a book.  Evan is an artist, and it's so cool because he does the strangest paintings.  I remember he did one of a  lamp post, and one of someone's nose, and it was so out there.  There were some exciting adventures.  It was a little inappropriate for me maybe, I'd say people should be in seventh or eighth grade at least.

Rating: 5 chocolate bars
Cover thoughts: It fits the story nice once you get into it. :)
Appropriateness: death rating, it has drugs, swearing, an sexual content
