Summary

The boys at school think James is a freak, and he isn’t sure they’re wrong. He’s 15 and possesses a genius level IQ. He has no friends, and his grandmother thinks it’s the 1960s, but none of these are his biggest problem.

James is gay and totally incompetent with social interaction. He’s also attracted to a man old enough to be his father. His situation seems hopeless, until he meets Lincoln and Taylor, two boys who begin to teach him how to interact with others and deal with being different.

I’m confused

Mark I have listened to all of your books! Big fan. This story was going so well and then all the sudden it was just over. There was so much more you could’ve written. I don’t understand...

And while I’m actually writing a review, I was wondering why you get so detailed in regard to EVERY SINGLE THING every character you’ve ever created eats. It’s mind boggling. Just wondering...

book 2 ????

there definitely needs to be a follow up book 2 for this story. possibly even up to 4 books filling the boys into adulthood an into retirement. I would definitely buy them .

Good, but not great.

Basically, it's about a 15 year old boy who explores his sexuality, but at the same time explores of what life could be for him. He fines his true friends at the end. Narration is excellent. Length is above average. but it's worth a listen.
