    A Joyfully Jay review 4 starsThis newly revised and re released work by Huston Piner may not have the same impact as his first novel, but there is still quite a bite to his story Dealing with everything from interracial couples to coming out, this novel uses humor to soften what can only be described as the most tumultuous and nasty of sopho years a student could encounter While I wasn t a huge fan of how the author handled the abusive encounters between Gene and Randy, I could also appreciate t [...]

    I received an eARC of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinionThis is a fun cute contemporary about a young guy who is trying to cope with the new discovery that he is gay He struggles with trying to find other gay guys to date at his school as it is set in 1979 and no one was out and about at the time.The writing of the story is okay, it s very fast paced and light, you could definitely finish this in one sitting It s perfect for people who look a good mushy teen flick, esp [...]

    Today is a day of historic importance See, I woke up this morning and discovered I m gay I know I know I know, it s not quite that simple I didn t just go to bed last night as the straight Randy Clark only to have the gay pixie come and sprinkle fairy dust all over me in my sleep Boy oh boy, am I in a pickle here On one hand, I just want to give this book all the stars because it was an ordinary romance coming of age novel featuring a gay protagonist, and in a way, that already ticks all my boxe [...]

    I have to say i am not a fan The writing style was just not for me The story line in the blurb sounded wonderful but i just could not connect to the characters pretty predictable and a bit stereotypical i had high hopes for this book There is not enough LGBT coming of age books this one is however set in the 1970 s so not modern day I laughed a bit and i cringed a bit i hope you can give this book a chance

    Growing up is never easy, but growing up gay in a small minded town towards the end of the 1970s is a potential minefield of missteps and unwanted attention Huston Piner does a great job cataloguing the ups and downs of high school as experienced by Randy Clark, a tenth grader with a tendency to overdramatize and the knack for becoming entangled in complex situations The narrative takes the reader on a journey of friendship, misunderstandings and falling in love, all told with authenticity and a [...]

    4.5 5.0I received a copy of this book through NetGalley I flew through this book because the writing was so great and the characters were all interesting in their own way The many relationships were amazing and at times I found myself forgetting the time frame that this took place, however their were constant refrences throughout the book that reminded me about this I will continue to read all works that are published of Huston Piner s.

    I would like to sincerely thank NineStar Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Conjoined at the Soul is an Own Voices story of highschool freshman Randy as he navigates the ups and downs of young adulthood.Randy s character underwent so much growth throughout the story He begins as a naive, idealistic boy who is willing to take attention wherever he can get it It was difficult and at times heartbreaking to see him making mistakes and poor decisions [...]

    Once again, Huston Piner has given us a coming of age tale that rings painfully true His protagonist, Randy Clark, is so familiar to me from my own adolescence, and in fact, the entire cast of characters feels like people I knew and grew up with myself.This is a remarkably deft and often humorous look at life as a gay teen in a time and place where that sort of thing was not cool, not cool at all Of course, cool or not, it existed, and the rituals of teenage acceptance clash with Randy s journey [...]

    So sweet and so normal Why everyone can t be just like that last waitress and accept people like they are and for who they are Nice little book about tolerance, love and selfrespect Waiting for your next book
