Booklist Review
Topher, Joey, Sam, and Mo discovered they shared a passion for the Wiz Kids television show when they were in fifth grade. They are not alone: Wizzers across the globe obsess over the show and its stars, particularly handsome Cash Carter. Now the four friends have graduated from high school, and Topher has carefully planned a 2,000-mile road trip. Whimsically, Topher invites Cash Carter, who astonishingly says yes. It quickly becomes obvious, however, that Cash is on a downward spiral, popping pills and drinking until he very publicly passes out on a dance floor. But he's able to connect with each of his new friends so intimately that they tell him their deepest secrets. An accomplished screenwriter, Colfer keeps the action moving while infusing plenty of emotional resonance. He has a flair for combining poignancy and hilarity so that readers find themselves laughing even as their hearts break a little bit. An excellent choice for readers looking for LGBTQ themes, as well as for fans of road-trip novels.--Colson, Diane Copyright 2010 Booklist
