Not Sure Boys features three gay short stories about growing up on Massachusetts' North Shore.
The stories read as individual narratives or as one story:
Wacky Packages, a gay young adult story.
How's he suppossed to feel when his mom tells him it's wrong to think his best friend is so handsome?
It's the 1970s when summers should just be about trading Wacky Pack cards, playing baseball, and wondering what you're going to be when you grow up--and not about lusting after your best friend's older brother. Singing a bastardized version of ABBA's latest hit into a hairbrush while standing in front of the mirror may get Robby just what he's been asking. "Can I see your bum Fernando?"
Where Derek Van Lies, gay boys or not so gay boys.
At nineteen she is the biggest fan of the rising country singer in this sleepy affluent town.
Meet Susan--a developmentally-challegned teen living with her parents--bags groceris at Market Basket. Her life revolves her idol, Derek Van, but Susan suspects something is wrong. Could he be a homo sapien?
Livin' on the Not Sure, a gay young adult story that turns into a hot MM romance.
Can the gay guy really get the hot, straight jock into bed?
Robby's done just that, but Jamie is hopelessly straight. Yet during the sultry summer of 1984 they have a steamy romance before Robby moves to the West Coast for college. Decades pass before they meet up again. Despite Jamie's straight-married life having going sour, is there still a spark between them? Is it too late for Jamie to change?
Not Sure Boys is a funny yet tender collection of interralated shorts about coming to terms with love under some not-so-accepting cicumstances. Every reader will be able to relate.
