A gay coming-of-age romantic comedy—perfect for fans of Love, Simon!
It’s been two years since Sam broke up with the only other eligible gay guy in his high school, so to say he’s been going through a romantic drought is the understatement of the decade. When Meg, his ex-Catholic-turned-Wiccan best friend, suggests performing a love spell, Sam is just desperate enough to try. He crafts a list of ten traits he wants in a boyfriend and burns it in a cemetery at midnight on Friday the thirteenth.
Enter three seemingly perfect guys, all in pursuit of Sam. There’s Gus, the suave French exchange student; Jamie, the sweet and shy artist; and Travis, the guitar-playing tattooed enigma. Even Sam’s ex-boyfriend, Landon, might want another chance.
But does a Perfect Ten even exist? Find out in this delectable coming-of-age romcom with just a touch of magic.
Sam Raines, 17, is tired of being lonely and single he hasn't even kissed anyone since breaking up with his ex, Landon. So he agrees to participate in a Wiccan love spell conducted by his best friend Meg, and he puts together a (mostly shallow) list of qualities for a "perfect ten" of a boyfriend: sexy, "thick hair," ambitious, etc. Almost immediately, prospective partners start popping up all over Athens, Ohio: Gus, a jazz-playing French transfer student; sweet and artistic Jamie, a sophomore; and bisexual rock star Travis, who can't keep his hands off Sam. Philips (the author of My Faire Lady as Laura Wettersten) keeps this wish-fulfillment fantasy moving briskly, thanks to the quippy dialogue and Sam's dalliances with all three boys, as well as Landon. It's a too-good-to-be-true setup by design, but although pure realism isn't really the goal of this magick-driven plot, the characters are more types than real people. Philips successfully keeps the conclusion from feeling foregone, however, and Sam and his friends grow plenty along the way. Ages 14 up.
