The MEETING DENNIS WILSON boxless boxed set
Presenting the MEETING DENNIS WILSON boxless boxed set!
This is a set of all seven books of the serialized YA novel, signed by the author. It's a boxed set without the box!
"...I just got an old copy of your (Beach Boys) album 'Summer Days and Summer Nights' which I love, and on the back of the album you say you like summer because you get to tour and meet all the girls. And that brings me to the subject of my letter. I feel a little funny asking this because I am kind of shy but I know you usually tour with the group every summer and I plan to get tickets as soon as I know where you'll be. And I would love to meet you. I am 16 years old (in June) and a high school sophomore (junior next year) and I am a blonde (but not ditzy) and a softball player (pitcher, a lefty). I am kind of cute but I could probably kick your butt, or at least Mike's or Al's, haha..."
15-year-old Beach Boys fan Margo LeDoux has a crush on Dennis Wilson and she wants to meet him... except... her boyfriend Scott doesn’t really like the idea: “I don’t want you runnin’ off and bein’ some groupie!” ("So?" replies Margo.)
Meanwhile, Margo’s best friend (and our narrator) Brian Pressley and his girlfriend, Christy Kelly, decide that they’re going to “take steps” toward going all the way, steps which seem to get them into trouble no matter how careful they are.
And then there’s Christy’s big sister Kathy, who’s stricken with a bad case of senioritis and a boyfriend who’s avoiding her just weeks shy of the senior prom... and Brian’s buddy Marty, a shy kid with a Beatles obsession and a crush on Margo... and Margo’s softball catcher Tara Longbaugh, whose parents have a connection that could get Margo closer to meeting her heartthrob... not to mention parents, brothers, sisters, classmates and teachers who just seem to make life harder, not easier.
In Margo’s words: “How do we put UP with all these people?”
And how can a girl with a rockstar-sized crush meet the drummer of her dreams?
MEETING DENNIS WILSON is about love and friendship and growing up, and mostly about the things we do to put distance between ourselves and the things-- and people-- we love and want most.
And music. You can almost hear the car radio playing.
“Today marks the day that I officially add Meeting Dennis Wilson to my ‘Favorite Coming of Age Books’ list. I adore John Green and his work [and] I fell in love with this book just as easily as I fell in love with Paper Towns or An Abundance of Katherines. Meeting Dennis Wilson can easily be compared to a teenager who’s just coming of age: awkward, quirky, hilarious, and loads of fun to be around. Meeting Dennis Wilson is incredibly comical, sweet, and ultimately feel-good.” (The Literary Connoisseur)
