Book Review: Fag

Fag by Krissy Bells: Aaron Garrett is many things in life: he is a son, a friend, a student, and caring boyfriend to his lovely girlfriend Leigh Ann. In these roles, he is kind, hardworking, smart, loving, dedicated, and considerate. At Jefferson High School, he is a leader, a football star, and well-respected by his peers. Aaron’s life is perfectly on track, he is pursuing a college scholarship and hopeful for the future, except for just one thing: Aaron Garrett is gay. When a former child star from Aaron’s small Southern town saturates the national media after making homophobic comments, Aaron’s life is turned upside down as supporters rally around the sentiments. Social media attention begins to swell nationally and locally until it begins to eat away at every part of Aaron’s existence.

Jordynn's thoughts: This was a very moving novel. As soon as you start the book it pulls you in and you are connecting with the characters. Aaron’s story was heartbreaking and it was hard to read about his inner turmoil about being gay. This novel teaches us that whatever someone may be showing on the outside they might be suffering on the inside. I was shocked about Aaron's friends and the drastic measures they went to exclude him. This is not my usual kind of book but it was an eye opener. I look forward to more novels by this author.
