Just a Boy by Rob Clinger

justHaworth Press, 2007     ISBN: 1560236612

Seventeen year old Jove is attracted to some of his male friends, particularly to Jason who lives next door, as well as to a neighbor’s gardener he’s been spying on. He’s relieved that the girlfriend he doesn’t really care about is going away for the summer. Through a series of typical ups and downs over the next few months, Jove comes out, and finally finds himself with the boyfriend he’s wanted all along.

Unfortunately the writing is stilted, and the chapters, at approximately three pages each, are annoyingly short. Oddly, the publisher has chosen to put copyright information at the bottom of the first page of each chapter, and I found that interrupted the flow of the story even more.
