Publisher's Summary

Xander Fairchild can't stand people in general and frat boys in particular, so when he's forced to spend his summer working on his senior project with Skylar Stone, a silver-tongued Delta Sig with a trust fund who wants to make Xander over into a shiny new image, Xander is determined to resist. He came to idyllic, Japanese culture-soaked Benten college to hide and make manga, not to be transformed into a corporate clone in the eleventh hour.
Skylar's life has been laid out for him since before he was born, but all it takes is one look at Xander's artwork, and the veneer around him begins to crack. Xander himself does plenty of damage too. There's something about the antisocial artist's refusal to yield that forces Skylar to acknowledge how much his own orchestrated future is killing him slowly ...as is the truth about his gray-spectrum sexuality, which he hasn't dared to speak aloud, even to himself.
Through a summer of art and friendship, Xander and Skylar learn more about each other, themselves, and their feelings for one another. But as their senior year begins, they must decide if they will part ways and return to the dull futures they had planned, or if they will take a risk and leap into a brightly colored future - together.

Not What I Wanted

Pros: The Japanese Manga themed stuff and culture was interesting. Xander and Skyler were cute together. The narration was top notch, of course. The cover art was probably the best part of the entire production.

Cons: The sexuality was confused, sort of gay, sort of not gay. Sexless romance is not what I had hoped for. The angst involved with either character is nothing novel. The thing with Skyler's dad is way hackneyed and in my opinion boorish and wasn't even resolved properly by the author before there was a "two years later" thing that was disappointing.

Overall: Not what I had wanted from the author at all. STILL ... Special Delivery (No offense Iggy, but I loved Robert Nieman's version better) is the best since day 1). Oh well, better luck next time!

Perfect!

...in every way! This book is a favorite of mine and if you open your heart and mind, it will be a favorite of yours. Heidi Cullinan and Iggy Toma make such an excellent team. One of them alone is worth whatever they're asking to share their craft with you, but together they're magic. I fell in love with this book when I first started hearing it was getting written. I knew it would be special and it is. Read it. Listen to it. Love it as much as I do.
