Author Jeffery Self narrates his own audiobook, which creates a morally complex teen drama that feels decidedly relevant in today's culture. Marley's life at his small-town high school seems uncomplicated until he falls for Christopher, a new student. Their romance blossoms for a few weeks until Christopher's ultra-religious parents send him to a "Pray Away the Gay" camp, setting in motion a tragic series of events. Self's voice gives life to the boys' romance and offers an endearing look at young love. When he covers the heavier topics, he manages to add a layer of pathos without sounding preachy. The nature of the topics covered, coupled with Self's tactful reading, will give listeners a lot to think about. A.G.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
