The Guy Gets Teddy

T5 of 5 stars


Oh, Teddy. My sweet, sweet Teddy. I want to squish him in a giant hug. And maybe Connor too for writing such a hilarious, poignant story.

But I also want to shake Connor and ask him WHY, FOR THE LOVE OF JEEBUS, DID YOU HAVE TO TEAR ME APART IN THE FIRST CHAPTER????

I digress…

I loved the concept of Camp Diversity and the unique way campers were sorted into cabins (by sexuality) to prevent any shenanigans. This process wasn’t fool-proof as the reader learns.

Teddy’s cabinmates were an absolute pleasure and added just the right balance to Teddy and Travis.

There’s Rufus, the joyful, friendly asexual:

“I mean, sexual fantasies are awesome…but contemplating actually having sex is just not that appealing.”

Chastity, the snarky, cynical (but caring underneath all that superficial barbed wire) bff:

“I’m allergic to happiness, not fun.”

And then there’s Travis, the unexpected (at least to Teddy) love interest.

He was hot. He was gay. He couldn’t see me eating a candy bar.

I was overjoyed when Teddy finally saw his worth and let himself just be with Travis.

He was a hot guy and I was…Teddy.

Oh, but Teddy, that’s what makes you perfect.

Of course, Connor had to tear me apart again with one of the most perfect, tender lines I’ve ever read:

He was beautiful in the ways that mattered.

So are you, Teddy.
