I like romance and boys loving boys in my books.

I'm not the target demographic for this book, and it showed. The writing is geared towards young adults, with more telling than showing. The messages in the book however are profound as expected, and I enjoyed reading about both Adam, who learns to stand up for himself and be who he is, and Angel, whose good deed turns into much more than he could have expected. It's about family, the one you're born into and the one you choose, and about the lesson that while blood may be thicker than water, blood doesn't always determine family.
Realistic voices, realistic struggles and realistic outcomes make this a wonderful book for any young adult and might even be considered required High School reading. For someone in the YA demographic looking for a realistic story about young men coming of age, this is an excellent choice.
I received this book directly from the author. A positive review was not promised in return.
