Notes

Description
Honestly, what amazes me the most with a lot of the people I meet is that they think they're so big. They think, ultimately, that the universe revolves around them. And I'm beginning to think that it's only when you live a life like mine-it's only when you're in a position where you don't even really own yourself, when you can't even really say that you're a citizen of any particular country-that you realize that we're all just tiny pieces of cosmic dust floating through the void until we disappear forever and we're never heard from again. So begins the life story of our uber famous twenty-two year old narrator. A teen idol since he was twelve, when a video of him singing went viral, his star has only risen since. Now, haunted by the suicide of his manager-father, unsettled by the very different paths he and his teenage love (and girl pop-star counterpart) "Mandy" have taken, and increasingly aware that he has signed on to something he has little control over, he begins to parse the divide that separates him from the "normal people" of the world -- from Amazon.
