"Once again writing as Lauren, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings (The House) tackle religion, identity, and sexuality, seamlessly interweaving Tanner’s Seminar project, his crush on Sebastian, and the fallout when Sebastian’s feelings conflict with his church’s expectations of him. A hopeful and moving love story." (Publishers Weekly)
"Manages to tackle the intricacies of sexuality versus organized religion in an intense but ultimately inspirational narrative. Lauren successfully tackles a weighty subject with both ferocity and compassion." (Booklist August 1, 2017)
"Readers will cheer for Tanner's confidence in his sexual identity and for the quality bi representation he provides. Satisfying." (Kirkus Reviews July 2017)
"This sensitive and complex story is as much about finding love as it is about finding and accepting oneself....The text deals sensitively with serious issues, especially Sebastian’s grappling with his sexuality in the context of a stifling Mormon upbringing, but it’s also hilarious and relatable. Readers will enjoy seeing Tanner find his voice." (Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books September 2017)
"An impressively balanced approach to writing about the conflict between sexuality and strict religion. Members of the Mormon church are not painted as one-dimensional villains, but as multifaceted individuals with merits and faults....The teenagers are modern and relatable and the plot is emotionally engaging without becoming dark. VERDICT A thoughtful variation on the traditional high school LGBTQ+ romance" (School Library Journal September 2017)

Eighteen year old Tanner Scott is quite comfortable with who he is. But his move to conservative Utah has him back in the shadows. That is until his move out of state for college. He decides on a dare to take class where he must write a book in a semester his senior year. Easy right? Four months is no time at all. But in those four months he falls in love with Sebastian. And his life is never the same.
Autoboyography is an experience. One told in truth, with grace, and powerful poise. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, but I am one of the lucky ones to have lived through the eyes of these characters. I was moved beyond words. Their voices were loud, even in their silence. I know I am not giving much here, but everyone needs to read this book. Go in blind. The story will awaken you. Push and challenge your thoughts and beliefs. It’s a poignant story. Authentic. Inspiring. The beauty of the complexity of the story is manifested in the characters and everything they encounter. I was absolutely captivated. You feel their struggle, but most of all their love.
It hits very close to home for me as far as the religious aspect goes. I love Tanner and Seb.
"To think that God loves the trees, but condemns that blossoming thing they do in the spring."
I shed many tears in this book - happy and sad. I will gladly read this book over and over and over again. It makes my heart so happy.
Love is love is love is love...
