Autoboyography by Christina Lauren Book Summary

“This book is epic.” —Cosmopolitan
“A hopeful and moving love story.” —Publishers Weekly

Fangirl meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this “sensitive and complex” (BCCB) coming-of-age novel from New York Times bestselling author Christina Lauren about two boys who fall in love in a writing class—one from a progressive family and the other from a conservative religious community.

Three years ago, Tanner Scott’s family relocated from California to Utah, a move that nudged the bisexual teen temporarily back into the closet. Now, with one semester of high school to go, and no obstacles between him and out-of-state college freedom, Tanner plans to coast through his remaining classes and clear out of Utah.

But when his best friend Autumn dares him to take Provo High’s prestigious Seminar—where honor roll students diligently toil to draft a book in a semester—Tanner can’t resist going against his better judgment and having a go, if only to prove to Autumn how silly the whole thing is. Writing a book in four months sounds simple. Four months is an eternity.

It turns out, Tanner is only partly right: four months is a long time. After all, it takes only one second for him to notice Sebastian Brother, the Mormon prodigy who sold his own Seminar novel the year before and who now mentors the class. And it takes less than a month for Tanner to fall completely in love with him.

Validating, rapidly page-turning. I grew up a queer kid in a non-accepting Christian household. It wasn’t Mormonism, but it was close. Sebastian’s character is one that I resonated with so much it made me cheer, cry, and gave me anxiety as I swiped through each page. I also see myself in Tanner. It’s such a validating book. The experience of reading it is one I’ll cherish

Amazing read!. Christina Lauren have created some of my favorite characters and storylines. I passed this book over because coming of age books aren’t always my favorite but THIS book was great. They did an amazing job with this story and setting.

Absolutely Incredible. This book is one of the most relatable things I have ever read. It was beautifully written and filled with emotion. I recommend it to anyone who is struggling with who they are.

Truly Amazing.. This book is, in fact, truly amazing. It shows the struggles of one character struggling with their sexual orientation, though he isn’t the main, main, character, I truly connected with him on many levels. The two main characters (Tanner, & Sebastian) have a very different family life and culture, though they find each other and fall in love. I love this book so much and recommended it to people who love a good LGBTQ+ book and a coming of age novel. ❤️❤️

So much love.... CLo, you ladies never cease to amaze me with your books. Tanner and Sebastian's story hit my heart big time, as well as close to home. I didn't want to put Autoboyography down for a moment. The love, passion, and struggles of Tanner and Sebastian are something that so many of us can relate to, but to also add in the pressures that come from living in the community they did... I can only imagine how difficult that could be for so many - feeling like they're living in a falsehood. Thank you again for writing another amazing book. I know I will read it again and again ❤️ Much love!

so sweet. this book had me invested from the beginning. the author created the perfect love story. lauren really showed that pros and cons of being in a Igbtq+ relationship while also battling religion. the characters are really likeable. touching. captivating. heartfelt. this is a must read for and romance lover!!!

Autoboyography review. This book is easily a favorite. It has shown me so much and I just instantly fell in love! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is into romance, comedy, or is struggling with coming out. Once again, great book! I love it!!!

This book is amazing. I read this book in one day I could not put it down

Loved this book! Beautiful.. Autoboyography completely grabbed my attention and touched my soul. Tanner and Sebastian’s story was full of pain and hurt, but also full of young love, self discovery and the joys of coming into your own. The story is a young adult coming of age story about the pain of having to remain in the closet while wanting to scream to the world your love for the one person you aren’t supposed to fall for. ‘His voice is both low and quiet, and it has this hypnotic rhythm to it. I wonder whether someday he’ll give sermons with that voice, whether he’ll throw down judgment with that voice.‘ This book took me back  years when I spent most weekends wrapped in blankets on the couch watching the movie, Latter Days, with my two best friends on repeat. Much like this book that movie touched something deep inside me. While the two stories are vastly different the subject matter is quite similar. This reminder of my past warmed my heart and had me in tears. Sadly over five years ago I lost one of those friends to depression. He was unable to deal with the pain that comes from being gay in a society that wants you to be straight. Reading this story in a day took me through a myriad of emotions. I laughed out loud, had tears streaming down my face, and a sense of joy when it all came to an end. I was left with an epic book hangover and it is going to take something special to pull me out of it. This was a top read for me and I highly recommend it. ~miranda

Great Story!. Great story !

Amazing.. Great read!

Autoboyography explores the challenges of two young men as they fall in love.. *This review was originally posted to my blog, {Books She Reads}. Autoboyography explores the challenges of two young men as they fall in love. One family is loving and accepting of their bi-sexual son, while the other is a devout Mormon family that accepts no relationship beyond that of a man and woman, no exceptions. The entire time I read about Tanner and Sebastian growing closer together, I was waiting for it to all fall apart. I knew it was coming; it was only a matter of when. Tanner and Sebastian are opposites in many ways, setting them up for failure right from the start. Sebastian is the son of a Mormon bishop, and Tanner has a mother who slides gay pride postcards into his pillowcase as often as possible. Tanner is confident in who he is and can’t wait to leave the small-minded Mormon town and take on college, proudly bi-sexual. Sebastian has his future mapped out for him with his Mormon mission and his expected place in the church; he must hide who he is or risk losing everything he has. While Sebastian is not the main POV character of the novel, it was him that I found myself connected to the most. Truthfully, I didn’t even like Tanner for like half of the book. Tanner’s attraction towards Sebastian is strictly physical and a bit concerning. “I need to have him or I won’t be okay.” Blah! Tanner is referring to Sebastian like he is a limited edition collector’s item. Sebastian is a PERSON, not an object. Tanner cannot HAVE Sebastian. At this point in the book, Tanner doesn’t even know Sebastian, he only knows OF Sebastian. It gets worse when Tanner becomes an internet stalker, downloading pictures of Sebastian he finds on the internet to create his “Spank Bank folder”. “I’m ready to start the Sebastian Brother Spank Bank folder.” Ugh!…again…Sebastian is a person who should not be objectified and stalked online to obtain photos of him. I don’t find this mindset flattering at all, and these two moments happen before page fifty. So yeah, not the best first impression of Tanner. The author spends a significant amount of ink on explaining the LDS church’s belief in same-sex relations and the extremes that were/are used to “fix” those who were attracted to the same sex. Most of the opinions are negative, and the words “Mormon” and “LDS” are used with negative intonation. Most of these explanations occur within the first 100 pages of the book, and it felt a little strong and negative. I became a bit turned off to the novel with all the “LDS is bad” talk. In hindsight, I understand why the author spent the first 1/4 of the book explaining the LDS church; it puts into perspective the inner battle of Sebastian and why he must be so careful in secretly pursuing a same-sex relationship. Tanner’s parents are supportive and accepting of his sexuality. However, every parent worries about matters of the heart for their child and Tanner’s mom is well versed in the strict mindset of the LDS church. Tanner’s parents express understandable fear for their son and what might happen if others knew of the relationship between Tanner and Sebastian, and the effects of having to keep his relationship with Sebastian a secret. My heart broke for Sebastian over and over again. His love and admiration are divided between his parents, church and Tanner; with two forbidding the one. Falling in love shouldn’t be this painful, Sebastian shouldn’t have to risk losing his family to follow his heart.

Brought Me to Tears. I’ve had this book on my shelf for about a year, but never wanted to read it. I picked it up last night, and was shocked at how much I loved it. Tanner and Sebastian’s love for each other was so wholesome, and it had such good moments representing how hard it is for someone to grow up in the LGBT community while being a Mormon. I cried four times, and it really took my breath away. If you’re looking for a book with the most adorable protagonists, a way to see how hard it is to grow up queer (and to then cry about it) or just want two characters to fall in love, then I would recommend to you this book. You won’t regret reading it.

a MUST read. This book was honestly so good, from the heart breaks to the heart throbs, this book is so well written. When I read it I feel like I’m right there next to it watching their memories unfold. I highly recommend this book to anybody, but mostly to the struggling gay teens out there (like me). In conclusion “Autoboyagraphy” is my favorite book right now (I read it in less than two days!) and I very much do hope for a sequel. I hope this review helps anybody who reads this. - Evan

Great Coming of Age Story. This book caught me off guard with how amazing it was. I just randomly thought to pick it up and i'm so glad I did. I love MM books, but i usually do not read coming of age, high school books. This book exceeded my expectations, especially since this is my first book from this author(s). This book had great pacing. Every little detail added to the story. I loved Sebastain and Tanner so much. Their love story really touched me and breaks my heart but so many young people go through it everyday. A definite must read. I'll definitely be looking at their other books as well.

Best book of Christina Lauren!!!!!. I am a huge fan of Christina Lauren . I read most of their books. But this book is something else. So much love and passion. You have to fall in love with Sebastian and tanner either you are gay or not. It is book of trust.....self realisation and much more. I am a mother of 2 kids. This book teaches us to love our child even you are not happy with their decision in life. Please support all your kids who are different than you. Don’t leave them alone . I highly recommend this book not only for teens and also for the parents who have teen kids.

Swoons, Sighs, angst and fluff. One of my favorite Christina Lauren books yet! A beautiful representation of a budding M/M romance with the added pressures of organized religion, family expectations and small town living. A great read with lots of swoons, angst and sighs. I hope teens (and adults) in the LGBTQ community find themselves represented in the novel and thoroughly enjoy the read.
