Don't Let Me Go

Don't Let Me Go

Source: Kindle

Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner. Nate Schaper found his in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirting became a real, honest, tell-the-parents relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is undaunted. He and Adam are rock solid. Two parts of a whole. Yin and yang.

But when Adam graduates and takes an Off-Broadway job in New York—at Nate’s insistence—that certainty begins to flicker. Nate starts a blog to vent his frustrations and becomes the center of a school controversy, drawing ire and support in equal amounts. But it is the attention of a new boy who is looking for more than guidance that forces him to confront who and what he really wants.

J.H. Trumble’s debut, DON’T LET ME GO, is a witty, beautifully written novel that is both a sweet story of love and long-distance relationships, and a timely discourse about bullying, bigotry, and hate in high schools.

My Review...

This book had me on an emotional rollercoaster from the beginning till the end.  It is a deep story about love and coming out. I found it profound and very moving. I was biting nails on what Nate or Adam was doing and just wanted to throttle them to get them to actually talk so they could figure it all out but no.... why would they do that.

All the characters were great in this book and is so great when you can see gay teens having positive coming out and it simply breaks my heart to see the negative ones. I just don't understand why there has to be negative ones but hopefully when there are ones my fingers are crossed that they have great support systems like Daniel and Juliet.

I was so happy with the ending because my heart stopped beating when Nate made the most foolish choice of his life.

Great emotional book.
5 Heart warming thumbs up!

  2. I have already pre-ordered it. Can't wait. Your first book blew my socks off so can't wait to read the second one. Thank you for the great heart wrenching story.
