Pink Marine books and products

As previously stated, Netflix the body is an adaptation of author and former Marine Greg Cope White’s autobiography titled The Pink Marine, which was published in 2016.

By good readsHere is the full synopsis of the book:

“The Pink Marine is the story, filled with hilarity and angst, of how a teenager who struggles with self-acceptance and doesn’t fit the traditional definition of masculinity finds acceptance and self-respect in Marine Corps boot camp. When Greg’s best friend Cope White tells him that he’ll be spending the summer at Marine Corps boot camp on Parris Island, South Carolina, all Greg hears is «summer» and «camp.» Despite dire warnings from his friend, Greg vows to join him in recruit training. He is eighteen, underweight, has never run a mile, and is gay.

Greg’s sheltered life hadn’t prepared him for military service. Like a prince out of water, he packed five bags since he had never been away from home for thirteen weeks. The US Marines stripped him of all that, shaved his head and put a rifle in his hands. At first he struggles to keep up and fears his secret will be found out. But halfway through, the desire to survive and become a Marine trumps fear. He learns that everyone, just like in the real world, comes to the service feeling ‘different’; Possibly biased by the color of their skin, their weight, their poverty, some have even chosen boot camp over jail. Can a flighty, unmanly, 112-pound Texan transform himself into one of the proud few Marines? Will Greg survive?
