Booklist Reviews 2018 April #2

Beckett Gaines isn't interested in being anyone other than himself: a Golden Girls–loving, fantastically gay theater kid stuck smack in the middle of the Bible Belt. The not-inconsiderable "homosexuality is a sin" crowd is annoying, and it's impossible to lose his virginity here, but his dad, also a Golden Girls aficionado (and a total Rose), is great, and Beck doesn't have many complaints—until his dad starts dating Tracee, newly single and one of high-school king Jaxon Parker's moms. Jax, who just wants his moms back together, is fully aware that he himself is attracted to girls and guys, but he's a popular quarterback, and he's keeping that information quiet. Beck and Jax reluctantly join forces to split their parents up, just as their school starts preparing for its first-ever Rainbow Prom, where romance, whether they like it or not, is in the air. The language is raunchy, the innuendo is frequent, and the energy is irrepressible. Hand this debut to readers tired of problem novels who are looking for a hilarious romp. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 April #2

Florence, Ala., is not an easy place to be gay, but 17-year-old Beckett Gaines is doing his best to be out and proud, and he's trying to lose his virginity (and hopefully find love) via his newly installed Bangr app. His father is supportive, so much so that he and his new girlfriend, Tracee, are planning a Rainbow Prom, but Beck worries that Tracee is on the rebound from her longtime female partner. It turns out that Beck has an unexpected ally in Tracee's son, Jax Parker, a quarterback, class president, and golden boy who just wants his moms back together. It's a small town, so Jax and Beck have a history, but they turn out to have things to learn about and from each other. Debut author Howard may lean a little heavily on gay tropes (Beck seems to have grown up on a diet of The Golden Girls and RuPaul), but he tells a funny and satisfying love story while challenging simplistic preconceptions that people are either gay or straight or that the Bible Belt plus football equals a homophobic community. Ages 14–up. Agent: Brianne Johnson, Writers House. (June)
