All right, fine… here’s what I want. The third thing. I want Lyga to tell everyone my name. There’s one time in the book when Mom calls me Donnie and that’s it. People read three hundred pages about me and they’re thinking of me as Donnie? And everyone else just calls me Fanboy. I swear […]

I think all Fanboy wants is a normal life. Everyday in school is the worst day of his life. He wonders how it feels to be a normal kid. No one judging you, everyone smiling at you, being yourself and people accepting who you are. He’s been through so much suffering, he lost hope in […]

“I just catch a glimpse at first, but it’s enough to tell me that she’s gorgeous.” Throughout the book, Fanboy fantasizes about girls. Which leads me to think he wants a girlfriend. “I’m alone, of course, with Dina nowhere to be seen.” He dreams about making love to her. Fanboy wants it to be real. […]

He definitely wants to be respected. He wants people to at least listen to him and respect his opinions. Along with heat vision, but who doesn’t want that?

Fanboy wants respect. He wants to be able to walk around campus without being punched in the arm or knocked around in the hallways. He tries to gain it one way by writing a comic book and gaining fame, but when he sees Bendis and his cronies, he realizes that cliques don%u2019t stop after high […]
