Augusten Burroughs books are enjoyed by housewives, movie stars, alcoholics and even teenagers. Taken from his web site
Reading this book is like watching a train wreck – you can hardly believe the mayhem, but your eyes are glued to the scene – horribly fascinated. It is easy to read, no superfluous descriptions, an intimate look at the growing pains of a very non-average kid.
Watch what I think is the companion movie, The Tracey Fragments by Bruce McDonald. An ordinary teen looks for love and acceptance and experiences devastating heartbreak and life shaking remorse. You won’t be disappointed with Bruce McDonald’s edgy treatment and razor sharp editing – a must see!
