My Nerves A Bit Andnerves a bit and m not sure if anyone else found this an issue while reading it Overall i did enjoy the book and it ad its moments that i enjoyed i think this book would be good for anyone who enjoys books with LGBT themes in it This book was kind of disappointing and predictable I basically skimmed the last 100 or so pages Both Sean and Mike ave stereotypically religious families so their relationship is doomed almost from the start I did like Mike s little sister Toby and "when is mom finally stood up to is "his mom finally stood up to is at the end It s a slow read so I wouldn t recommend it for someone looking to get into books with mm romance Now i understand why people say that this book is difficult to rate and review I really loved the first The Founders of Psychical Research half of the book but i kinda lost it in the second i didnt even realize s death it took me like 10 pages lol This was reallyard to read and reviewing is pretty much impossible So I m just going to muddle along Pelé: The King of Soccer here and not go into too much detail But it was really really depressing And even though there are pinpricks of light at the end it was overall just so sad I actually felt my stomach drop out at one stage I m in no way saying these kind of stories aren t important They are And this is gay ownvoices and minority authors should and can tell the stories that areard and bitter and devastating T to go Dad wants Mike to ditch art for sports to toughen up but there’s something uneasy behind Chakras & Self-Care: Activate the Healing Power of Chakras with Everyday Rituals his demandsThen Mike meets Sean the new kid andey becomes games of basketball partn. .
