2014 Rainbow Award Winner: Best Gay/Lesbian Young Adult Novel

 

Cover art by Dani Alexander

Alex’s life as a teenager in South Central L.A. is far from perfect, but it’s his life, and he knows how to live it. He knows what role to play and what things to keep to himself. He’s got it all under control, until one lousy pair of shoes kicks him out of his world and lands him in a foster care group home.

Surrounded by strangers and trapped in a life where he could never belong, Alex turns to the only person lower on the social ladder than he is: a “special” mute boy. In Sebastian, Alex finds a safe place to store his secrets—those that sent him to foster care, and the deeper one that sets him apart from the other teenagers he knows. But Sebastian has secrets of his own, and when tragedy rips the two boys apart, Alex will stop at nothing to find the answers—even if it means dragging them both through a past full of wounds best left buried.

It might just be worth it, for the slim chance at love.

    I just gave 5 stars to Social Skills on Goodreads and can’t wait to read more of your work. Silent is anxiously awaited. Thank you for your writing. It’s fresh and without the typical formulaic M/M plot devices. I predict you will be a very popular and well respected writer of gay male love stories. Social Skills is among the best stories I’ve read. Your work is very much appreciated.

    Oh my gosh! I loved Silent. The story was so amazing…I just wish there was more. I was so sad when I reached the end. I really enjoyed the book. Thank you for writing such an amazing book.

    I also read Social Skills (like twice in a row…it was that good!) I couldn’t put it down. I truly enjoy your stories. 😀
