what IS team adam?
September 18th, 2011
I just explained this at the Brooklyn Book Festival—and thanks to The Book Muncher for prompting the question.
But there have been questions about Team Adam. There is no love triangle in IF I STAY and WHERE SHE WENT, no one vying for Mia (unless you consider death the other suitor) or for Adam (well, there is Brynn, but not really). So, if you are TEAM ADAM, does that mean you’re not on TEAM MIA? That you’re against Mia?
No! Team Adam is more of a universal team. And by belonging, you are making a statement about your very preference for manhood. It means that you stand on the side of guys who act like men, and men who treat girls and women with respect. Who get that sexiness doesn’t have to mean assholishness. Guys who aren’t afraid to show a little heart now and then, but can still totally rock a guitar solo. Guys who get that being a withholding dickwad* just isn’t cool Guys who want the best for you, even if it’s not always the best for them. Guys like Adam.
So, are you TEAM ADAM? You want a button to show it? Here’s how to get one.
