Where to get:
The debut novel from "American Pie" series screenwriter David H. Steinberg. It's the last weekend before high school graduation, and as they prepare to go their separate ways, four life-long friends spend a wild and raucous night in New York City that forces them to face their fear of growing up... and growing apart.
West Hartford, Connecticut. Growing up in the suburbs is a mind-numbingly boring experience for most teenagers, and high school seniors Dylan, Noah, Pike, and Walker are no exception. They spend their days testing how fast they can drive on the local residential streets, bribing homeless dudes to buy them beer, and attending crappy house parties. So when Dylan proposes that they spend their last weekend of high school in New York City attending an underground rave, the guys are ready to make some serious memories.
In New York, though, the guys have run-ins with a drug dealer with a penchant for fire extinguishers, a Chinese restaurant owner with a score to settle, an Albanian street gang, con men, hookers, performance artists, and a gaggle of hot, degenerate, rich girls. Over the course of one incredible night, their outrageous journey gives the guys a bonding experience they'll never forget, as they learn that part of growing up means they're going to have to face their futures on their own.
(Parental advisory: Contains strong language, drinking, drugs, and sexual situations, all involving teens.) (Goodreads)
ONE MORE WEEK. The guys had known this day was coming since kindergarten. Hell, they'd been dreaming about it for years. As the day approached, the constant barrage of lame video-yearbook retrospectives and school newspaper top-ten lists forced them to think of little else. But now that high school graduation was actually upon them, they weren't so sure how they felt anymore.
You're eighteen. What were you going to do, get married? This isn't West Virginia.
