About The Book
‘My first time getting it in the butt was kind of weird. I think it’s going to be weird for everyone’s first time, though.’
Meet Jack Rothman. He’s seventeen and loves partying, makeup and boys – sometimes all at the same time.
His sex life makes him the hot topic for the high school gossip machine. But who cares? Like Jack always says, ‘it could be worse’.
He doesn’t actually expect that to come true.
But after Jack starts writing an online sex advice column, the mysterious love letters he’s been getting take a turn for the creepy.
Jack’s secret admirer knows everything: where he’s hanging out, who he’s sleeping with, who his mum is dating. They claim they love Jack, but not his unashamedly queer lifestyle. They want him to curb his sexuality, or they’ll force him.
As the pressure mounts, Jack must unmask his stalker before their obsession becomes genuinely dangerous…
I got Thirteen Reasons Why vibes from this book, not because of the main content but because of the YA/Teen mystery ‘who dun it’. I totally loved this book, and it’s another LGBT read that I’ve added to my read list this year. There’s a lot of anal sex references included in this book though, so if that sort of thing makes you feel uneasy, you may want to give it a miss. I love Jack, he’s a completely open man slut, but you also get to see how vulnerable he is. I also love the close relationship he has with his mum, you often don’t get to see that in YA novels. This book will give you all the feels, and if you are gay and curious about sex. Jack might also be able to answer some of those hard embarrassing questions you have.
