    I'm always glad to read a new book by Mark A. Roeder and while others sometimes find his books a bit preachy or repetitive that's never been a problem for me. This one does have some of the same aspects and it centers on Brandon, one of the straight but accepting boys of Verona Indiana that we met in Mark's first book, Ancient Prejudice, Break to New Mutiny. Brandon is an athletic, young, straight-identified young man who lost his closeted gay best friend to suicide when homophobes in a rural small town made I'm always glad to read a new book by Mark A. Roeder and while others sometimes find his books a bit preachy or repetitive that's never been a problem for me. This one does have some of the same aspects and it centers on Brandon, one of the straight but accepting boys of Verona Indiana that we met in Mark's first book, Ancient Prejudice, Break to New Mutiny. Brandon is an athletic, young, straight-identified young man who lost his closeted gay best friend to suicide when homophobes in a rural small town made the young man's life miserable. Now Brandon is a freshman at Indiana University and is shocked when he realizes that he too may have feelings for another guy. As with all Mark's books, I found the prose inviting and easy to follow and the characters were genuinely likable. I did find Jon and Brandon's constant insult battle a bit sophomoric and unrelenting in spots but then, the guys involved are teenagers and sometimes these things are overdone in real life too. (Or perhaps Mark is the Midwest's master of the single entendre. ) As with most of Mark's stories there is an element of fantasy fulfillment in them that appeals to me but may be grating to a more critical reader. I would NOT recommend this as a good place to start reading the collected works of Mark A. Roeder. Personally, for that exercise, I'd recommend A Better Place or if you have a higher capacity for sad endings than me, The Soccer Field Is Empty is the best place to begin. Whatever your tastes in literature, these books are eminently readable and do serve a purpose in a world where, all too often, those that are different feel as if they were the only ones with these problems. For readers who are completists like me this book is interesting in that we see several of the characters from other Blooming Boys books from a slightly different perspective. When taken in combination, these character appearances start to become like glimpses of old friends.

    First of a proposed series of novellas following the GYC boys at IU, Brandon is a great beginning. It takes one of the most endearing (and straight) characters from Verona HS and plops him down in college. It also ties his story into two other, full length novels that take place in the early days of the youths' college years. Roeder makes Brandon's adventure totally consistent with what we already know of Brandon and yet takes him into new, edgier territory. A fun, quick read.
