I'm Alison. I've been blogging for almost 9 months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.
No Going Back by Jonathan Langford (received from author)-Jonathan was kind enough to send me an e-copy of this book last month. I finally had time to start reading it this week. I'm almost done with it and am quite enjoying it thus far.
-Summary: A gay teenage Mormon growing up in western Oregon in 2003. His straight best friend. Their parents. A typical LDS ward, a high-school club about tolerance for gays, and a proposed anti-gay-marriage amendment to the state constitution. In No Going Back, these elements combine in a coming-of-age story about faithfulness and friendship, temptation and redemption, tough choices and conflicting loyalties (courtesy of Goodreads)
