Absolutely splendid!! Hilarious tale of teens who lie, steal, cheat and sing their way to help a friend pay for college.

Jeff Woodman, narrator, is spot on with his voices and characterizations.

I loved, loved, loved this!!

This book was great. It was funny, fun, charming, and never boring. I really like how the author nailed the drama-kid scene.

Marc Acito is one of my favorite writers... I followed his columns in the local queer paper and jumped on this first book (there's a sequel btw). In How I Paid for College he not only manages to write a coming of age story that isn't insipid; he covers the ambiguity of sexuality and the unique nature of theatre people.

A fantastic novel for a genuinely smart, funny, kind writer.

I love love love this book! As a theater person myself I loved the personalities and the antics. It was perfect, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to laugh, and who has a creative sense of humor.

Jeff Woodman does a brilliant job with the narration. On occasion, the author's attempts at humor can be kind of forced, but it is largely a funny book. There's explicit of explicit sex (gay, straight and mixed) throughout; at times I fast forwarded through that, not because I'm a prude, but because I was interested in gettihng to the plot itself. Edward, the protagonist, is techically bisexual. However, I remained unconvinced that he was particularly attracted to women as such, more that he could relate sexually to women (like Kelly) whom he liked. I'd read another by this author.

Cleverly written, and free from irony. This author has a real sense of seeing the humor in his life. There is a reality here that many authors of the genre do not achieve.
