Social Skills by Sara Alva

Social Skills is the debut novel by Sara Alva. I had actually read her second book Silent prior to reading this one and it was so good that I knew I had to read this too. Social Skills is such an incredibly heart-warming book. I just wanted to wrap the main character up in a great big hug and tell him everything was going to be ok. This book is […]

There is some angst involved (relating to coming out etc.) but overall the two protagonists are generally […]

Hushed by Kelley York

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this book since I finished reading it.

Hushed is the story of two life-long friends Archer and Vivian and their complicated, ofttimes tragic, past. The two of them have what […]
