One thing Liam Turner knows for sure is that he's not gay - after all, his father makes it very clear he’ll allow no son of his to be gay. And Liam believes it, until a chance meeting with James "Jay" Bell turns Liam’s world upside-down. Jay is vivacious and unabashedly gay - from the tips of his bleached hair to the ends of his polished nails. With a flair for fashion, overreaction, and an inability to cork his verbal diarrhea, drama queen Jay must have a screw loose.
An accident as a teenager left Liam with a limp and a fear of driving. He can’t play football anymore either, and that makes him feel like less of a man. But that’s no reason to question his sexuality... unless the accident broke something else inside him. When being with Jay causes Liam’s protective instincts to emerge, Liam starts to believe all he's known in life has been a convenient lie. From intolerance to confrontations, Liam must learn to overcome his fears - and his father - before he can accept his sexuality and truly love Jay.

Yes, it is an Aussie book, so expect the narration to go with that, but very sweet book about family, coming out, and being accepted.
His voice was perfect for the characters

This is a great little love story
The fun descriptions of how J behaved and his personality. The way he and Liam interact and the protectiveness awakened in Liam are too fun.
The bashing of J and Liams' reaction were very touching. The you tube video bit caused tears in my eyes.
My favorite scene was when Liam comforted J in the kitchen after his grandma passed.
Jay himself was the most memorable character. He is a fun person who would be great to have around.
In the past I have returned a book read by this narrator. He was awful on that one. Here he is very good. If you too have heard his reading of Tigerland and been put off him, give this book a chance. Where that one had little differentiation between the different characters this one is easy to tell which character is talking.
