Tanner Scott is not ashamed of being bisexual but when his family moves to a conservative Mormon town, he doesn’t reveal his orientation. When his best friend goads him into taking part of a writing course he can’t help but develop a crush on the teacher’s aide.
I can’t believe it took me this long to read the book. This was such a well written story about young love and how that might go against your faith.
I have to give major props to the authors of this book. They wrote a beautiful story that featured the Mormon religion and they never once made fun of the people or their faith. When it comes to religion in media, whether it be books, television or movies, writer have a tendency to highlight the negatives.
The authors focused on the importance of family and community. This made Tanner and Sebastian’s relationship much more compelling. They had different risk and consequences that we don’t normally see in YA books but many young people experience today.
This was well written story that allowed the relationship to organically form. It has also two sets of well fleshed out families.
I gave this book an A. I highly recommend it.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
