A high school boy, desperate to escape the idiocy of the people in his hometown, tries to create a way in which he can move to New York, attend the college of his dreams and do something other than live in the footsteps of his drunken, divorced mother. Along the way he blackmails his fellow students into contributing to his literary magazine and discovers what it's like to feel accomplished. Does he get accepted into the college of his dreams? Is he going to make a difference and follow his life goal? Written by Jo J.

Quotes

[first lines]
Carson Phillips: I always thought death would be different. I expected a great wave of realization to sweep over me - suddenly the meaning of life would be answered along with every other question I ever had - but there was nothing to realize. I was dead.

This Movie was Horrible, (read entire review) the ending made me cry non stop. my bf thought one of my family members died. I Really loved this movie I haven't cried that much from a movie since watching Les miserables. I was kidding about it being horrible. 2 thumbs up. absolutely fantastic. And as a Glee fan I loved seeing Chris Colfer be this smart ass writer. And Rebel Wilson Fantastic as always. But seriously I'm still sobbing as i write this. I knew he died in the beginning but after watching the sequence of events that lead up to it, I was heart broken. When Carson's(Chris Colfer) mother called his phone repeatedly after the news of his death i yelled at the screen telling her to stop. because it was too painful for her to call and get no response time after time. Devastating lost
