Mitchell Wells may not survive eleventh grade. He really only has one friend. His normally decent grade point average is in limbo due to a slightly violent, somewhat inappropriate claymation film. And girls, well, does hanging out with his sister count? Then his friend reveals he's gay, one of the most popular girls in school decides she must date Mitchell, and--oh right--prom's coming up.

A classic late-teenage growing up story. This book most accurately depicts what it's like to be seventeen. Exploring the differences between friendship and romance, making risky decisions, and overall, learning how to be an adult. The ending of this book was subtle yet powerful, although it leaves you with with a few loose ends. Other than that, this is definitely worth your time.

"Junior year is turning out to be eventful for Mitchell Wells: his best friend has just come out to him (and only him); he's turned in a somewhat obscene claymation short film instead of his paper on The Grapes of Wrath (didn't go over so well); and one of the most popular girls at school suddenly likes him (huh?!). Prom is coming up, and at this rate, there's no predicting what will happen. If you liked John Green's An Abundance of Katherines or Stephen Chbosky's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, it's a pretty good bet that you'll like Two Parties, One Tux, and a Very Short Film about The Grapes of Wrath, a dryly hilarious and painfully honest slice of high school life."

Totally charming and very funny. I loved the voice of Mitchell Wells, a straight seventeen-year-old who has never had a date. His best friend, David, is gay and in love with him. David has never had a date either, with a boy or a girl. Together, they negotiate the minefields of relationships -- friendship as well as romantic -- and of school and growing up.
