Tales from Foster High: Book Three

With just 151 days left until the school year ends, Kyle Stilleno is running out of time to fulfill the promise he made and change Foster, Texas, for the better. But Kyle and his boyfriend, Brad Graymark, have more than just intolerance to deal with. Life, college, love, and sex have a way of distracting them, and they’re realizing Foster is a bigger place than they thought. When someone from their past returns at the worst possible moment, graduation becomes the least of their worries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A TRIBUTE TO KELLY AIMES... 25 mars 2014
Par Biotchy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I can still remember the time finishing up "End of the Innocence" how awful I felt after reading it. It was not because the book was bad but because how bad it ended for Kelly Aimes. I remembered in the end of feeling heavy in the chest. Sad, angry, guilty we're among the many emotions that enveloped my senses.

As a book of fiction, I am fully aware that there might be thousands or even millions of Kelly Aimes out there who are in need of protection. Protection from discrimination- race, color, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, political beliefs, etc. Discrimination comes in different forms and it is present everywhere.

I'm so glad to have read this one as retribution from the last book. At least this ended on a happy note. Of course, I may have shed a lot of tears from reading it, no surprise there.

A tribute to Kelly Aimes... I still felt such a great loss as I read through the book on how everyone made it through graduation, except for Kelly (Jeremy as well). So much drama had happened that it made them survivors. This is war- as they declared it, by this new generation. Stronger and open to possibilities. As probably predicted, the world is changing and we're not afraid. To every hater or bigot out there, we are changing them one person at a time as the message suggests.

Kyle and Brad- you're both my heroes!!! This is something worth reading for...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful ending to a wonderful series. 26 mars 2014
Par BetsyKline - Publié sur Amazon.com

(This is my overall review of the series) A wonderful ending to a great series. I was completely engaged from the first page through the end of the series. This was one of those books (series) that when all is said and done, it makes you want to be a better person; to treat people better and to take action against injustices you see rather than just being an observer in the world. I highly recommend this series - to EVERYONE - those with kids, those thinking about having kids, those who know people who have kids, those who just want to read a great story. I started this book because I really enjoy the m/m genre and read a great review for the final book in the series that said if I hadn't read Foster High I definitely needed to and I must start at the beginning. So that's what I did. I started the book because I heard good things and then continued to read the entire series in a weekend because it is THAT good. This is a great story - it is YA/NA so it is not hot and heavy - it is, however, a beautiful, touching and sometimes tragic story that draws you in and teaches you. The characters (ALL of them) are so well done - even the ones you're "supposed" to hate you can't. READ IT!

You'd think with only five months left before graduation that Foster High and its senior class would only have smooth sailing. If you really thought so, you haven't been following John Goode's series at all or you haven't been in high school for a very long time.

The previous book in the series, End of the Innocence, brought the tales of Foster Texas High School through the first half of senior year when something cataclysmic occurred, an event so horrific that it reverberated through the tiny town of Foster.

Be warned: To get the most enjoyment out of this two-book look at Foster High's senior year, it's imperative to read the the books in order. Although readers will be brought up to date at the beginning of 151 DAYS, John Goode is making an incredibly important point in these books, a point that is blunted if one reads this book first and then decides to read the previous one.

The event from End of the Innocence is still on everyone's mind as the second half of senior year begins. And this tragedy is causing everyone to look inward.

Brainy Kyle Stilleno and baseball star Brad Graymark are still together, and Foster High's principal still resents their abnormal relationship being accepted by so many students, faculty, parents, and residents of Foster. The stir that Kyle and Brad made coming together has affected more than just the students, and past sins, especially the long ago death of a prominent citizen's son by a hit-and-run driver, are being dug up to join the pall that's fallen over the town from recent events.

If all of this sounds just a little oblique and hazy, it's because I'd hate to spoil the shock value of the previous book which permeates and centers this book. End of the Innocence is one of those books that will live in readers' minds if they are blindsided by the horrible event, and will be blunted and robbed of its power if readers know what happens in advance.

So as the snippy Robbie, the town's blatantly gay character, would say, "Suck it up and read Innocence already." If you read both books, I can promise you laughter, sorrow, and at the end elation. As a bonus there are no sex scenes, so readers can give this to teens and adults to enjoy.

What I can tell you is that John Goode's stories are grounded in today's high school experiences and aren't farfetched at all, which make them even more gritty. Fortunately, however, the author is an optimist and not a pessimist. His message is one of hope and happiness. He sees the next generation not in terms of doom and gloom, but in terms of righting past wrongs and building a better world.

As far as 151 DAYS is concerned, he ties up the series on a positive note even though the steps leading up to the good news is rocky. It's a journey well worth taking.

Par Christy Loves 2 Read - Publié sur Amazon.com

"Change is a bitch, and that’s because it isn’t always easy to know it when it happens. I mean, sure, sometimes it’s obvious. I go over to Brad’s and end up kissing him, and my whole world turns upside down. Hard to miss that change. I decide to tell the world I like guys. Colossal change that is still affecting crap today. Kelly shoots himself. A change that brings the town to a standstill like an earthquake, and the aftershocks of it keep coming and coming."

Two emotions battled for dominance within me before I started reading '151 Days'. Fear and excitement. Fear, because I didn't want Kyle and Brad's story to ever end, and excitement, because I couldn't wait to see what they'd accomplish in the final months of their senior year. Considering the way their winter break ended, I figured they could only go up from there. I was right, and I was wrong.

Even though I'd seen it coming, a part of me had hope that Kyle would be able to get through to Kelly, and Kelly could find his own inner strength to stand up to the bullying. But, he didn't. Instead, he killed himself. Leaving the entire town of Foster, Texas, reeling, and the majority of the student body convinced that it was Brad, Kyle, Jennifer, and Sammy's fault. Kyle is determined to change Foster for the better, and he has until graduation to do it. All while he and Brad move through the stresses of SAT's, is too much sex a bad thing, and who's getting a scholarship, and to where, and what if they're not going to the same place? Not to mention, their breakup, and trying to figure out if what they have together is enough.

And so the year slowly goes by. Kyle gets the school board to agree to Foster High having a gay-straight alliance, and he gets a teacher who wants to oversee it, and an old wrong gets righted from an unexpected place. That was a change. Brad being made team captain of the varsity baseball team, and his fellow players being willing to quit to keep him. That was a change. The coach in cahoots with Tyler's sporting goods store to order the season uniforms with the permanent black armband, and dedicate the season to Kelly. That was a change. When the principal figured out a way to keep Brad and Kyle from going to prom, and the entire student body decided to do their own prom, away from Foster High. That was a change. To unite a town and teach them to look beyond their differences. That was a change.

Each of the books in John Goode's series, 'Tales from Foster High', have left me stunned, and in awe, over the brilliance that is this man's writing. This final book was no different. One of the things that I loved the most about this book was the many different points of view that I was treated to. Not just Brad and Kyle, but many of the influential secondary characters who have determined so much throughout the series. I loved getting more insight into these people and their unique viewpoints on some of the happenings. It was refreshing and liberating, in a sense.

I realize that, once again, I'm not doing justice to this author's work. I'm not sure I can, to be honest. The sheer emotion and life altering decisions made in these final days of Brad and Kyle's senior year absolutely swept me away. Looking back on my own final year, I can honestly say I don't believe I was ever that passionate about anything or anyone. I truly hope the author will revisit these two young men as they make their way in the world, together. But, for now, I will miss them. I will miss Brad's unswerving loyalty and love for Kyle. I will miss Kyle's passion to do, to be, to make the world a better place. But, most of all, I will miss their love for each other.

Thank you, John, I will never forget them.

“We are going to go out into the world, and we are going to find those people who are filled with hatred, and we are going to tell them their time is done here. That we will not tolerate that crap anymore. You want to know who we are and where we are going?”
The kids were going crazy now, myself included.
“We are coming for you, and we are coming for your world, and we are pissed. If you stand for hate and for discrimination and you can’t see that all people are worth something, then know this. We are the graduating class of Foster High, and your days are numbered.” ~ Kyle, Valedictorian
