9780141318349: The Gospel According to Larry

"The Gospel According to Larry" is an incredibly clever and timely pop culture story told through the journal of 17-yr-old Josh Swenson. Josh is bright, articulate, idealistic and in love with Beth - the girl next door and his best friend since sixth grade. Afraid to declare himself, he pours his energy into a clever website, through which his alter ego, Larry, advocates introspection, tolerance and anticonsumerism.

About the Author:

Award-winning American author Janet Tashjian lives with her family in the outskirts of Boston. She loves the beach and going to concerts but hates people who waste water or aren't passionate about life (especially at the same time).

From the Inside Flap:

Josh Swensen wil wat veel jongeren willen: de wereld verbeteren. Hoe het anders zou moeten, schrijft hij in zijn blog. Of beter gezegd: dat schrijft Larry in zijn blog, en niemand weet dat Josh Larry is. Lange tijd is dat geen enkel punt, totdat het blog van Larry een wereldwijde hype wordt.

Zijn ideeën over de merkengekte, de manier waarop grote bedrijven de wereld beheersen en over de krankzinnige aanbidding van celebrities, brengen een complete beweging op gang. Zozeer zelfs dat Bono (jazeker, die van U2) een Live Aid-achtig benefietconcert organiseert ter ere van Larry's gedachtegoed. Vanaf dat moment is de jacht op Larry geopend. Iedereen wil weten wie hij is.

En minder dan ooit wil Josh dat bekend wordt dat hij achter het blog zit. Of misschien mag één persoon het weten: zijn oude vriendin en stille liefde, Beth, die Larry adoreert. Maar Josh krijgt de kans niet haar te vertellen hoe het zit...
