Format: Paperback
"They Don't Wanna Wait: The Stars of Dawson's Creek" came out after the first two seasons of the recently departed signature show of the WB network. The title, of course, is inspired by the Paula Cole song that served as the theme song for the series and while this book clearly uses the young stars of the show a selling point, it actually provides a lot more insights into the series than you would expect. The first two seasons takes us through the Pacey and Ms. Jacobs, Jen and Dawson, Dawson and Joey, Joey and Jack, Pacey and Andie stages of the series. Authors Kathe Tibbs and Biff L. Peterson offer up standard cast bios of the six principles (the youngsters, not Dawson's parents or Grams), covering how each got involved in acting and was hired for the show, along with various movies in which they had appeared by that point in their careers.
However, despite the fact that "They Don't Wanna Wait" offers up the stars of "Dawson's Creek" as its selling point, these profiles are the second smallest part of the book. The second chapter is devoted to rather a detailed look at the Hollywood writing career creator of "Dawson's Creek," Kevin Williamson. "The Importance of Being Earnest," the third chapter, consists of a pair of critical essays. The first looks at "TV Teens in the 1990s," making the case for how the idyllic teen world of John Hughes films gave way to the demographic spurred youth boom of "My So-Called Life," "Party of Five," "Dawson's Creek," and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." The second, "Up the Creek: The 'Dawson's' Formula," refutes the dismissal of the series as simply a teenage version of "Melrose Place" ("Payton Place" is you are my age).

It was so cool to read all the interesting background information on James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams! And I never knew that Kevin Williamson was really gay--he really is! Know I know why Dawson stands alone in the boat like that--he's a truth-seeker in an ocean of lies! This book tells you all the facts about the most important television show ever filmed. Yeah!
