“The desperate usually succeed because they have nothing to lose.” – Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts
Brad returns to his hometown for a high school reunion. He stays at his childhood friend Jimmy’s place who does not know that he is gay. Brad decides to come out and face the music. What happens next is not quite what Brad expects especially in a podunk town like Sheridan, Wyoming.
Light with a hint of comedy are a couple of things I liked about this novelette. Brad’s confession to his best friend was the catalyst that spurred on the events in the story which surprised our MC Brad. However, I found it too short and left much to be desired.
There was nothing wrong with the writing, pacing or plot. It was just the length that I had a “problem” with. Just when I was beginning to get to know the players and was getting excited over Brad and Wendell’s budding romance, things ended abruptly!
If there would be a sequel, I would want to know and would welcome it so. There has to be something in the pipeline and I think, I would not be the only reader desperately wishing for one.
This book deserves a rating of:
