A Very, Very Bad Thing by Jeffery SelfFrom the author of Drag Teen, a startling novel about the complexities of identity -- and of truth.
Marley doesnt just want to be labeled The Gay Kid, but he doesnt have much else going on. He doesnt have any hobbies. Or interests. Hes the only kid he knows without a passion . . . until Christopher comes to town. Hes smart, cute, gay, and . . . the son of the countrys most famous, most bigoted television evangelist.
Marley and Christopher immediately spark -- and become inseparable. For a month, its heaven. Then Christophers parents send him to a Pray Away the Gay program, which leads to even worse things. Hurt and outraged, Marley tells a very big lie -- and then has to navigate its repercussions.

Book Review – ‘A Very, Very Bad Thing’ by Jeffery Self
Or interests. Marley and Christopher immediately spark — and become inseparable. Hurt and outraged, Marley tells a very big lie — and then has to navigate its repercussions. There is a big plot twist, something that I was not expecting, and turned my opinion of this book around. All in all, I was starting to sum this book up as meh!
Oh, YA! You are such a vast genre that sometimes I forget that not all books within you are written in glorious prose or verse. I'm in a slump lately, to be honest. Every single book I've read since The Tragic Age has fallen flat, because the prose simply doesn't compare. The book is written at a nice pace, no glaring factual errors exist, etc.
Nora is practically on her own but deep down she is so lonely and it made me so very sad! She had her quirks like we all do and what really tripped me out was her thing for words!

To get my bearings and all that. Mostly, the second half. Once I hit the middle mark, I was reading more intently. I was into it. Good overall story and writing style and just enough intensity, and personal detail in the romance angle to keep me reading. However, it was making waves amongst the early readers, and we were getting quite an earful on my Facebook page, and when it comes to Leo… I was right there with you guys! Def a good read for sure!
