I can’t begin to express how much this book means to me. I’ve been a huge fan of John Green and the vlogbrothers since I was 16 years old. I remember when John announced writing this novel and signing all pre orders. I was incredibly excited! I remember moving into halls later than everyone else and being concerned about adjusting with everyone else who have lived there before and were already friends. I knew I would at least get along with the girl next door to me when I discovered her copy for Looking for Alaska. Through some miscommunications I accidentally acquired two signed copies of TIFIOS on my 20th Birthday. I remember gifting the spare copy to Amy on her birthday and how she almost cried and how it cemented our friendship. I was happy the book went to someone who would appreciate it as much as I did. I have been following the process of this movie since John announced the day of castings. I became more and more excited with the updates and photos from the set. I remember the release of the trailer and how Amy and I watched together and the amount of emotions the two minutes of footage caused. So much high pitched squealing. I cannot wait until the film release when I get to be an emotional wreck with my closest friends.

Will: Carlton, carlton, I understand that you’re scared, man, but the world can be a scary place. Just got to learn to deal with it.
Carlton: Yeah, well, I found my way.
Will: That’s not you, man. that’s them.
^ i remember this episode i cried while watching this
Me too. 😢
This episode had me in tears, man. Like, you really knew the characters were growing from this. I loved how it was comedy and still touched on issues that affected Black youth. We need more shows like this on television.
You gotta think, the whole concept of this show was Will growing up in a bad neighborhood where shit like this happened all the time, and Carlton grew up in a life of privilege and sheltered from this kind of life, and I think Will was crying because he came so close to seeing Carlton go down the wrong path and end up like some of his friends back in Philly.
Damnit, y’all… Damn.
But ya’ll be like Will can’t act.
