Publisher's Summary

Chauncey Cadbury is rich, young, and appears to have it all, but lives under the shadow of his family. He wants only to live his life in his adopted hometown of Bloomington, Indiana, but his domineering grandfather will not let him be. Desperate to get his grandfather off his back, Chauncey devises a plan to so shock his family that they'll never want to see him again.
He searches for the perfect boy for the job and discovers Cole, a teenage prostitute and Goth who despises the over-privileged. Together, the mismatched pair enters the insincere, backstabbing world of the Cadbury family and shares an adventure that changes their lives forever.

An Uncomfortable Listen

What would have made A Boy Toy for Christmas better?

A new narrator and less use of the words "boy toy"

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I can't react to the ending without spoiling it, so I will just say that I liked it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His voice was creepy and uncomfortable. A distinctly older man reading the words of an 18 year old Goth just doesn't work. In fact, both of the characters wouldn't sound anything like the author and it came across as a real distraction and made it uncomfortable to listen to.
