Review: Let me start off by saying that this book is about the Havensdale College in England. For all of us living in the United States this is a High School, not a college or university. I really enjoyed this story and recommend it as a young adult book even though it is about gay males, it explores those hard teenage years when young people are trying to figure themselves out. This was a well thought out and well written story that was easy to read. The plot is about a young man Scotty Williams an openly gay teenager who is trying to survive his last year and a half of school before he can start university and leave behind Taylor Raven. Taylor is the school’s tennis star and his mission in life besides tennis is bullying Scotty. When the school’s bad boy, Vincent, realizes that someone is tormenting Scotty he makes it his mission to protect the younger student who he has had a crush on. The chemistry between Scotty and Vincent is tender and beautiful. This is a rather long story, but it reads quickly. I could not stop reading it. That is until my kindle landed on my face while reading in bed. The ending is full of surprises. I loved all of the characters in this story. Maybe Becky Jerams will consider a series revolving around this group of friends.
