When I first bought this book, which was a couple months after it came out, I thought it would be another behind the scenes look at RENT. And while at some moments it is, it has another aspect that keeps you reading: his struggle with his mom's illness. This part of the book changed my life. Honestly, it gave me a new outlook on life. I have a better relationship with my mom for it. It makes everyday I spend with my mother, ten times better.
Anthony is an amazing writer, and he hides nothing in this autobiography.

I recommend this book
I loved this book! If you are a fan of the musical Rent or of Anthony Rapp you will most likely enjoy this book. Parts of this memoir are major tear-jerkers, but it offers a touching account of Rapp's life, his relationshps, and his experiences with Rent as the musical is cast, rehearsed, and performed.

Couldn't put down
I loved this book so much it was hard to put down. Anthony is an incredible writer and an incredible singer to. I went to see him in RENT in my home town and was so amazed by his talent. But this book was a story about his life and his losses along the way. I am waiting a few weeks and am then going to read it again.

Anthony has had experience in movies and other small Broadway shows including school productions. Anthony decides to audition for the musical Rent by Jonathan Larson. He ends up getting the part of Mark, one of the main characters in Rent. When trying to balance rehearsals of Rent and his mother sickness, when dealing with his sexuality and what his family thinks about it and relationships with his boyfriend, he tries he tries to deal with the death of Jonathan and creating friendship with the other cast members of Rent. This book is a non-fiction. I would definitely these book 5 stars.
You probably would want to see rent the movie or the Broadway show to understand it more. I rated this book a 5 because I am such a rent head that I couldn't stop reading it and I could defiantly relate to what he was going through in his relationships and family. You could tell that Anthony loved living his life in every page that he wrote about himself. I would recommend this book to someone who is a rent head and loves Rent the musical. Also to someone who loves to read about life stories and what people go through because you can connect your life to others.
