Product description

Product Description

A long time ago, on a playground far, far away, an awkward boy with two mothers and a penchant for pink shirts shook a tough girl’s hand over the rattled frame of a deposed playground bully.

Tamsyn promised to be Rodrigo’s bodyguard if he’d draw her pictures of girls wearing superhero capes. Rodrigo promised to be Tamsyn’s buddy if she’d let him braid her hair.

A deal, struck. A partnership, forged. And the timid gay boy and the fearless straight girl became inseparable.

Now college graduation looms, and Rodrigo questions his place in the world. He has no boyfriend. No job. And a sudden—arousing—fascination with the female body. Correction: with Tamsyn’s body.

Then one night, a golden ticket from a broken piñata introduces him to the man he’s wanted for years. Now he’s torn between pursuing these strange feelings for Tamsyn or following the guy of his dreams.

Best friends forever.

If love doesn’t break them up first.

5.0 out of 5 stars A coming out story, with a twist! 12 July 2016
By Christina - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Tamsyn and Rodrigo have been the best of friends for as long as they can remember. From diapers all the way through college they have leaned on each other through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Their relationship has been almost like that of siblings, but lately there have been more subtle looks and touches. Unknowingly, each is interested in the other but there is only one problem, Rodrigo is gay.

Rodrigo is the president of his university’s LGBTQA Association. Even though he doesn’t have the sexual experience to “prove” it, he has associated as gay his entire life. So when he has the opportunity to pursue a relationship with his rock star crush, will he finally be able to wear the title of president in good faith? Or will his feelings for Tamsyn get the best of him? And what about Tamsyn? Unknown to Rodrigo she’s been in a relationship with a woman for a couple of months. What will Rodrigo do when he finds out that Tamsyn hasn’t exactly been forthcoming in her own sexual background?

Coming Out is on the spicier side of YA. I would definitely recommend it for older teens, especially for those that feel like they’re on the outside of the LGBTQ community, when they’d like to be more involved. This story could easily be translated into different genders, expressions, or couplings, and still convey the message of acceptance at an awkward point in our lives; that time when we’re supposed to be “coming of age” but having more questions than answers.

Coming Out is a different kind of coming out story. It’s a laugh out loud, yet touching and sweet love story that questions what it truly means to love and how sometimes that connection transcends the labels that society puts on it. It proves that in the end, love is love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definately not what i expected! Loved it! 13 July 2016

The dialogue and writing are witty and captivating. Despite the serious undertones of life (graduating college, finding real jobs, etc) i found myself grinning and laughing. I sighed with a heavy heart when texts were deleted instead of sent. I giggled and did a fist pump when a hoped-for call finally came. It was an emotional ride, and a fascinating twist on life. Love is love, and it really shouldnt matter what is between your legs. And this story is an excellent reminder of that. The story is well paced and the characters are completely relatable for me. Sometimes taking a risk, making that leap, pays off. I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed it so much i bought a copy as well.
I look forward to reading more from Seven Slade!

The heart knows what the heart wants. In a twist of straight to gay, Rodrigo has thought himself gay his whole life. What happens when his supposed gay libido starts noticing his best friend of fifteen year's boobs? Confusion, chaos, jealous curious rock singers, and jealous lesbian girlfriends happen. But so does love Tamsyn is the loud, tough as nails bff who had had his back since 2nd grade. Now she wants his front too. Great story!!!
