    Desert Sons and its author Mark Kendrick are probably among the first examples of not tragic coming of age gay love story Not so many years ago, less than 5, it was almost impossible to find a love story among gay teens without any drama happening in it, and most of the time, one or both main characters didn t arrive to the end of the novel Yes, I know, I m maybe a little dramatic, but trust me, especially in the print books world the situation was not really far from what I described That Desert Sons and its author Mark Kendrick are probably among the first examples of not tragic coming of age gay love story Not so many years ago, less than 5, it was almost impossible to find a love story among gay teens without any drama happening in it, and most of the time, one or both main characters didn t arrive to the end of the novel Yes, I know, I m maybe a little dramatic, but trust me, especially in the print books world ...

    This book was awful If it weren t for the book club, there s no way I would have finished it One of the questions I posed at our meeting was What would you say is the central conflict driving the story Most members struggled to come up with an answer The basic plot of the book is Scott lives in a small town and is gay and then this new kid Ryan moves to the town and might also be gay spoiler it turns out he is gay But Ryan doesn t want to admit it Oh and also Ryan had a crappy relation This book was awful If it weren t for the book club, there s no way I would have finished it One of the questions I posed at our meeting was What would you say is the central conflict driving the story Most members struggled to come up with an answer The basic plot of the book is Scott lives in a small town and is gay and then this new kid Ryan moves to the town and might also be ...

    HOT BOYS IN LOVE.A very pleasant surprise, this boy romance novel is certainly one of the best of this genre At times I wondered why because I did have issues with the characters at times and some of the writing but the overall drive of the story, detailing the adventures of our two sexy boys in love kept me fully engaged and had me keenly flicking through the pages all the way to the end of this long but never boring 340 page novel And now...

    Protagonists Scott and Ryan could hardly be poster boys for the It Gets Better campaign Their lives in the California desert already are a lot better than the circumstances faced by most American gay teens They are yuppies with plenty of spending money, they are popular with their peers, and each is athletic and exceedingly handsome Yes, they are closeted, sort of, but they have family members who are supportive and teen pals who mostly don t care whether someone is gay One aspect of the p Protagonists Scott and Ryan cou...
