It's September! Time to head back to school, get out your winter clothes, go for walks with leaves crunching under your feet and when your done raking, there is always time for a good book.
This month's Author in the Spotlight is Brian Farrey. Brian won the Minnesota Book Award this year for his young adult novel: With or Without You. With or Without You is also a Stonewall Honor Book.
Here is the synopsis on Goodreads:
Eighteen year-old Evan and his best friend, Davis, get beaten up for being loners. For being gay. For just being themselves. But as rough as things often seem, at least Evan can take comfort in his sweet, sexy boyfriend Erik--whom he’s kept secret from everyone for almost a year.
Then Evan and Davis are recruited to join the Chasers, a fringe crowd that promises them protection and status. Davis is swept up in the excitement, but Evan is caught between his loyalty to Davis and his love for Erik. Evan’s lied to keep his two worlds separate. Now his lies are about to implode…and destroy the very relationships he’s been trying to protect.
This month you can expect a book review, a contest, an author interview and I am crossing my fingers that Brian will write a guest post for us. Brian has a new book being released in October. You can visit Brian at his website: http://www.brianfarreybooks.com/
Have a great month!!
