The world forgot all about Tommy. Ozzie doesn’t know what is going on or why everyone forgot about his boyfriend. All he knows is that the universe is shrinking and that the world doesn’t seem to care.
Shaun David Hutchinson is now on the list of instabuy authors, with each novel he pushes the blurs the lines between genres. This book was no exception.
Ozzie knows it in his bones that Tommy is real. Even when others around him can’t remember him, Ozzie knows the truth. The entire novel felt like a coming of age story set with a possible scifi twist.
There are so many changes happening in Ozzie’s life. His senior year is almost over, his best friend is starting to hit it off big with her band and he is trying to navigate his life without his best friend and first love.
On top of this relatable story, the author is populating his story with a realistic diverse cast (There is an interracial relationship between Ozzie and Tommy and Ozzie’s best friend is gender fluid). Hutchinson makes a conscious effort to include diversity while making it feel completely natural.
He talks about tough subject between race, sexuality and gender but he doesn’t preach. His characters aren’t going through identity crisis. They are just living.
This book had me laughing and crying.
I gave this book a B.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
